International investment in the emerging economies can help develop and maintain internal capital markets, but domestic stakeholders cannot rely solely on outsiders to support this critical financial function. So says this intensive but readable white paper from the World Economic Forum. It presents some best practices on building vibrant capital markets and wooing foreign funds. getAbstract recommends this easy-to-navigate reference to investors, executives and policy experts for its real-world insights.

In this summary, you will learn

  • How foreign investment can benefit emerging economies’ capital markets,
  • Why authorities in these markets need to take an active role in attracting international investors and
  • How officials can design initiatives to develop local financing.
 

About the Author

The World Economic Forum is an independent global organization that engages leaders of business, politics, academia and society to improve the state of the world.

 

Summary

A well-functioning domestic capital market serves an emerging nation’s need for investment and reduces its reliance on outside infusions of capital, which can raise monetary and currency exchange risks. But foreign investment should have a place in developing economies. Global financiers can boost growth in an economy that lacks adequate internal savings to finance local businesses. Whether international investors establish operations or take a controlling interest in a company through foreign direct investment, or take a passive role by investing in a national portfolio of equity and debt, they add funds to a country’s capital market, thus strengthening it and sustaining economic growth.
