Constantly adapting within an ever-evolving global arena
Financial markets are extremely diverse in scope, and they consist of a multitude of disciplines that can fall under various regulatory and non-regulatory spheres, dependent upon the set industry standards they operate within. 'Financial Markets' is a very broad term. It encompasses any marketplace where buyers and sellers participate in the trade of products, services and assets such as equities, bonds, currencies and derivatives to name a few. It can also encompass property transactions involving commercial and residential property assets. Financial markets are typically defined by having transparent pricing, basic regulations on trading, costs and fees with market forces determining the prices of assets that can be traded.
Over recent decades, much has changed in the way we trade. There has been a steady increase in cross-border financial flows around the world. Firstly, various financial institutions including banks and institutional investors have expanded their activities geographically, as have private individuals and general corporate entities. In the process of developing the globalisation of financial markets seen over recent decades, both technological advances and financial innovation have played a key role.
