Exeter alumnus Iain Sheridan publishes Financial Regulation and Technology: A Legal and Compliance Guide
Exeter alumnus Iain Sheridan’s new book Financial Regulation and Technology: A Legal and Compliance Guide has been published by Edward Elgar. The book is an important guide which analyses recurring issues within financial services regulation relevant to the use of technology, at a time when competition is moving towards greater use of technology in the financial services sector. The book is designed to be a comprehensive yet accessible guide to the regulation of finance and technology and to further readers’ understanding of the key case law, regulation, authoritative financial services regulator guidance and international standards governing these specific themes.
Iain Sheridan has spent 20 years publishing on cutting-edge technology, starting with a primer for high court judges on prosecuting Internet fraud (published by Butterworths in 2001). He has also advised FinTech businesses concerning intellectual property and global corporate taxation, and has worked with businesses such as Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and Barclays. After graduating with a Diploma in Law from Exeter University in 1995, he was called to the Bar at Inner Temple in 1997 and qualified at One Crown Office Row. He also holds degrees from Cambridge (MPhil), LSE (MSc) and Oxford (he came up to Exeter College in 2005 to study for an MBA), and also an Advanced Diploma in International Tax from the Chartered Institute of Taxation. Building on his wealth of legal experience, Mr Sheridan commented that ‘the seed for this book germinated in 2017 when I put together an article for OUP’s Capital Markets Law Journal’ and that he hopes for the book to become a ‘go-to resource’.
