Project Description

One day, we'll all invest this way! But can we afford it? Online investing has brought huge reductions in transaction costs of investing. However,there are good reasons for caution. This project will analyse the limitations of online investing regulation using legal and empirical approaches. Through an international collaboration it will introduce expertises in implications of investor psychology for online investing and in the comparative regulation of online investing. This is unique in the field. It will produce practical recommendations and legal theory for the future regulation of online investment. It will increase the safety and competitiveness of investing, bringing overseas investors to Australia through the Internet.
