Understanding South African Financial Markets Book PDF summary

"South Africa's financial markets are consistently praised as the most advanced in Africa, while its financial regulatory system, particularly at stock exchange level, has been judged on more than one occasion to be the best in the world. Regulatory excellence was no doubt an important factor in the unusual resilience displayed by the financial sector during the global financial crisis of 2007/8. However, South African regulatory authorities, not wanting to be complacent, are continuing to follow international good-practice initiatives to enhance the resilience and integrity of the financial system. Market practitioners, too, are striving to keep up to date with financial and technical innovation, globalisation, increased competition and the blurring of traditional boundaries between financial institutions and financial products and services. Understanding South African financial markets provides a comprehensive overview of the various aspects of South African financial markets and the institutions that operate within them. Understanding South African financial markets has been compiled by practitioners from the financial markets and experienced faculty members in economics and financial management. Each chapter starts with study objectives relevant to the material covered. Jargon that may be unfamiliar is explained in lay terms, and both international and local market practices and norms are discussed where relevant. Understanding South African financial markets is an introductory text that should serve as a useful reference and guide for commerce students, public servants and members of the business fraternity alike."--Publisher's description.

This paper examines empirically the determinants of financial market development in Africa with an emphasis on banking systems and stock markets. The results show that income level, creditor rights protection, financial repression, and political risk are the main determinants of banking sector development in Africa, and that stock market liquidity, domestic savings, banking sector development, and political risk are the main determinants of stock market development. We also find that liberalizing the capital account promotes financial market development only in

It is now clear that regulation must focus on the financial system as a whole, but this poses significant challenges for regulators. Principles of Financial Regulation describes how to address those challenges. Examining the subject from
