Course Objective:

This course provides a comprehensive overview of the challenges facing capital market development in developing countries and the steps required to overcome them.

The capital market should play an important role in raising funds and promoting balance and stability in the financial system. A strong capital market helps drive the economy forward, promotes growth and provides a return on long-term savings. However, in developing countries, capital

markets have yet to fulfill this potential and need to address challenges to achieve operational efficiency.

This course examines the legal and regulatory infrastructure and the instruments and trading systems of well-functioning markets. It also identifies the measures required to improve their development and efficiency in a developing country context.

Who should attend

Anyone involved in capital markets including investors and pension fund managers, traders, stockbrokers, pension trustees, insurance companies and investment banks. It will also benefit staff from relevant ministries, central banks, capital market authorities and stock exchanges.
