This text presents a practical analysis of the private law of banking transactions. Rooted in contract, the banker-customer relationship is overlaid with a range of rights and obligations having their derivation in tort, delict, notions of equity, good faith and statute. The book looks at some questions that arise within the banker-customer relationship in various European jurisdictions. What are the nature and consequences of the banker-customer relationship? Is there a duty on banks to advise customers and others about particular dealings and what liability arises if any advice given is wrong? What security can a bank take to protect itself as lender?
