The New Financial Global Capital Markets Growth Index

Executive Summary available in French.

The Global Financial Markets Association and New Financial have today published The New Financial Global Capital Markets Growth Index.

The report examines the development of capital markets across the globe and demonstrates their importance in supporting sustainable economic growth. It highlights how capital markets can help to diversify funding sources for corporates, increase the capacity of economies to absorb economic shocks and fund more sustainable pension systems.

The research also identifies the potential for growth in capital markets and pools of capital around the world. Our goal is for this report to provide a comprehensive and fact-based analysis to assist policymakers’ and market participants in better identifying development gaps and growth opportunities and how to address them, as well as better understanding how deeper capital markets can benefit economies.

The Global Financial Markets Association (GFMA) represents the common interests of the world's leading financial and capital market participants, and speaks for the industry on the most important global market issues. The Global Financial Markets Association (GFMA) brings together three of the world’s leading financial trade associations, The Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME) in London, Brussels and Frankfurt, the Asia Securities Industry & Financial Markets Association (ASIFMA) in Hong Kong and the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA) in New York and Washington.
