This paper examines recent institutional and structural developments relating to unified financial services supervision in Germany, Scandinavian countries and the UK. At the outset, it is important to stress that issues of regulatory organisation are essentially second order issues. Far more important -- and the first order issue -- is the implementation of financial regulation, in particular supervisory capacity and its quality and the soundness of the legal framework underlying the regulatory process.
