“Overall, the book has achieved its objective to "provide a broadly based and critical account of the role of law in financial investment". It is suitable for law students intending to go into the practice of financial services, as well as practitioners who may want a quick overview of the relevant rules and principles in the area. For scholars or readers who may be interested to delve deeper into the various topics outlined in the book, MacNeil has provided ample research sources in the footnotes which will help his readers carry out further research on specific aspects of the law on financial investment.” – Lan Luh Luh,

“The book is written in a very accessible style, it helps the reader by including a large amount of footnotes for immersion into further reading and contains the information relevant to come to grips with the law on financial investment.
It is helpful that the book starts with the basics or general principles, supports its findings by international comparisons and it is suited, therefore, for practitioners and legal policy advisers...as well as academics.
It can be thoroughly recommended to any (international) reader interested in the topic of the law on financial investment.” – Dr Roman Jordans,
