Financial law consists mainly of a combination of contract, property and insolvency law and the relevant private international law rules. It is specifically adapted to the use by parties active on the financial markets. This paper presents an overview of the axioms underlying financial law and identifies risk and return as the threshold concept in light of which all financial activity, in particular, risk creation and risk mitigation, must be considered.
