Competition Law for Wholesale Markets

Course Outline


The course sets compliance with competition law against the background of the Fair and Effective Markets Review (FEMR) and the recent Libor and foreign exchange rate rigging scandals.


The course contains three chapters:

  • An introduction to competition law
  • Anti-competitive practices and behaviours
  • Dawn raids

The emphasis is on practical application of the law, illustrated by examples and case studies, many of which are drawn from the FEMR itself.

It clearly outlines the types of activity that are unacceptable (for example, price fixing and bid rigging) and provides learners with advice on how to avoid being implicated in anti-competitive behaviour.
