The Netherlands is one of a handful of countries in which bank enterprise and national financial law give rise to a large number of international financial transactions. It is important then for practitioners in other countries to gain more than a notional understanding of the specific features of Dutch financial law, as well as a clear working knowledge of how Dutch financial law interacts with supranational regulatory and policy regimes affecting financial transactions. Toward this end, this very useful book provides a practical but nevertheless thorough survey of Dutch financial law, with lucid explanations of such topics as the following: specific rules applicable to investment institutions; specific rules applicable to debt instruments; offering securities in both primary and secondary markets; set-off and calculation of obligations of market participants (netting); structures for custody and book-entry transfer of securities; obtaining and terminating listings; mandatory bids, competing bids, friendly and unfriendly bids under public offering regulations; alternative investment funds and fund governance; meaning, jargon and function of derivatives, forwards, futures, options, swaps, etc.; securities repurchase and lending transactions; covered bond regulations; caretaking duties in private and public law; structure of legal proceedings of a prospectus liability claim; unfair commercial practices rules; case law in insider trading and market manipulation; and securities litigation in Dutch private, criminal, and administrative law. Written in clear, easy-to-follow English, this book makes Dutch financial law accessible to lawyers, business persons, and others whose work entails financial transactions in the Netherlands. It also serves as an admirable text for students and academics in the field of financial law.

Sukuk is the Arabic name for financial certificates. Sukuk securities are structured to comply with Islamic law and its investment principles, which prohibit the charging or paying of interest. This book is the first to set out how sukuk transactions can be structured under Dutch private law and covers the Islamic and Dutch legal issues involved. It explains the fundamentals of Islamic finance and analyzes Islamic contract, property, corporate, and finance law. The book describes how Islamic finance principles, such as riba (in short: prohibition on interest) and gharar (avoidance of contractual uncertainty), have contributed to the development of Islamic finance contracts. It examines the legal structure of sukuk transactions and the applicable Islamic finance rules, and it scrutinizes three main sukuk transactions (the sukuk al-musharaka, the sukuk al-murabaha, and the sukuk al-ijarah) under Dutch private law, mainly focusing on Dutch contract, property, insolvency, and corporate law. The book concludes that there are no legal obstacles to introducing Islamic finance in the Netherlands. Sukuk Structures: Legal Engineering under Dutch Law will be of interest to academics and practitioners in the field of banking and finance law.

The Netherlands is a small but highly densely populated country on the West coast of Europe. Having lost its colonial empire, it is devoid of much weight in foreign politics and the focus of Dutch politics over the last half century has therefore shifted to establishing and maintaining a Welfare State. In doing this, the Dutch frantically try to reconcile a competitive economy with a high degree of social protection. These efforts are made in a continuous process of corporatist bargaining between the Government and the social partners with a view to reaching agreements, often called the Poldermodel. It leads Dutch lawmakers to a never ending fine tuning of the laws of the Welfare State, also in the arena of labour law, in which often remarkable compromises are born, such as the concept of `flexicurity¿. All this made The Netherlands a kind of a `social laboratory¿, anxiously watched by numerous foreign observers, who ¿ in evaluating its products ¿ keep oscillating between `the Dutch disease¿ and `the Dutch miracle¿. This book gives an outline of the actual state of labour law and the laws governing its system of industrial relations in The Netherlands.

Financial sector liberalization, both domestic and in cross-border transactions, was a major force behind the gradual move to indirect controls and the shift toward full reliance on exchange rate targeting in the Netherlands. This paper analyzes the different steps in this process, discusses the main arguments behind the gradual approach, and draws lessons for other countries involved in this process. The paper argues that reforms in the financial sector, liberalization of the capital account, adjustments in supervision and regulation, and modernization of monetary management are strongly interrelated and should be part of a comprehensive reform strategy.
