Capital Market Products and Investor Protection
Consumer protection is an important issue in the commercial domain. In particular, consumer goods and services should receive protection. This study deals with consumer securities protection. Consumer securities protection has been applied in the US because of the financial crisis and fraud. Indonesia has experienced a huge case of financial fraud that involved the Bank Century-Antaboga.
