AN ASSESSMENT OF THE ROLE OF FINANCIAL MARKET IN THE ECONOMY: A CASE STUDY OF NIGERIAN STOCK EXCHANGE

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1    BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Nigerian financial system comprises the financial markets and financial institutions. Financial market refers to a framework within the financial system for the buying and selling of short and long term funds. Financial markets are mechanism for facilitating the issuance of securities. They provide the system for issuing stocks, bonds, and other securities. Financial markets can therefore be said to mean an arrangements or structure for exchange of financial instrument. Financial market can be divided into two. Capital market and money market.

Capital market is the hub of   the   National economy as the pivot for capital formation (savings) and investment. It therefore, plays a vital role in wealth creation, employment generation, poverty reduction and income redistribution.

As it’s popularly known, the Nation Economy Empowerment and Development Strategy (NEED) of the Federal government of Nigeria is predicted on four key strategies viz reforming the way government works and its institutions, growing the private sector, implementation of a social charter for the people and reorientation of the people with an enduring African Value System. In growing the private sector by the use of appropriate strategy elements such as revitalization deregulation and liberalization programmed amongst others. The mobilization of medium and long-term investment capital is encouraged where the capital market is expected to play a major and critical role.

The capital market provides a veritable framework, the institutional and regulatory platform for realization of the lofty goals of the NEEDS Agenda. In the absence of the capital market, industrial growth would be hampered, as the money market is not designed to provide such funds. An efficient capital market mobilizes funds and allocates a greater proportion to those companies with the highest prospective rates of return after giving the allowance for risk. This allocation function is critical in determining the overall growth of the economy. 

The Nigerian capital Market has strong impact on the Nigerian economic society. Every aspect of the economy could participate by getting listed on the Nigerian stock exchange. The capital market is a good place for long-term capital generation and thus, has a strong impact on industrial development and further helps develop the economy. The enlightenment of the public on the impact of the capital market could be a strong determining factor towards economic growth as organizations and individuals alike could participate in the market at their different levels.

Capital market is a financial market that provides facilities for mobilizing and dealing in medium and long term funds. The players on the capital market are the operators who act as intermediaries between the providers of the funds and the fund users. Cooley and Roden (2009:42) see capital market as any place where securities greater than one year are bought and sold.

The Nigerian capital market is two, which can be broadly classified into primary market and secondary market. 

Primary market is a market where new securities are issued. According to Anyafo (2004), primary market is a segment of capital market where securities are first issued and it is sometimes refers to as the new issues market, securities sold in the primary market being launched into the market for the first time. In other words, it is a market for buying and selling of virgin securities. Examples of primary market are issuing house.

Secondary Market is a market for trading for existing securities. In other words, secondary market is a re-sale market where investors buy and sell previously issued securities which Emekekwue (2000) in fun referred to as bend-down boutique. Example of secondary market includes Nigeria stock exchange, the activities of brokers and dealers.
