Abstract:     
Scandals are a recurring feature of UK financial services and they were probably more common in the 1840s than today. There is no overwhelming evidence that general financial practice is less ethical than it was in the Victorian era and it appears more likely that ethical standards have risen. This paper considers the role that the criminal law can play in financial services regulation and how in the US it can be melded with other strategies such as deferred prosecution agreements.
