Fully functioning capital markets work by pooling savings, which can be channeled as capital to fund local business growth (or government projects) and generate jobs, while simultaneously offering the public an opportunity to invest in returns-bearing assets.


Thus, capital markets are important because they supplement the financing of the economy, allocate risk, and support economic growth. They also serve as an essential organized system for the free flow of capital raised through debt or equity. 


Despite the intermediation and developmental role of capital markets, the Nigerian Capital Market is however buffeted by a variety of issues that require synthesis – these include regulatory mandate/focus and infrastructure, market incentives and barriers, fit-for-purpose exchanges that deliver market integrity, and an industry-wide need for good governance culture.
