Ethics in Investment Banking
by John Reynolds with Edmund Newell
(Palgrave Macmillan, 2011)
A response to ethical questions posed by the financial crisis, co-written with investment banker John Reynolds, and launched at St Paul's Cathedral just a few days before the arrival of Occupy London.
Reynolds and Newell have produced a well-informed assessment of the multiple ethical issues that investment bankers must confront. With an insider's view of the industry as well as expertise in applied ethics, they focus on the critical differences between compliance and ethics. The result is a no-nonsense book full of practical and workable solutions to ethical problems. Ethics in Investment Banking could not be more timely, making it very clear that there is no excuse for the absence of a strong ethical foundation to investment banking.
