The development and integration of financial markets is at the forefront of academic and policy debates around the world. Nowhere is this more in evidence than in Europe where the integration of financial markets is a primary objective of the European Commission and fully supported by the European Central Bank. This book brings together leading economists from across the world to analyse the central issues in the development and integration of financial markets from a European perspective whilst highlighting their global relevance.

The book is a timely contribution as it appears at a time when the effects of monetary unification on the one hand and the Financial Sector Action Plan on the other are beginning to shape a new pan European financial market.

Financial Markets and Institutions is a must-have reference for policymakers, financial market practitioners, and graduate students and academics with an interest in this increasingly important area. Each contribution is written in a rigorous but non-technical fashion, drawing on the latest theories and empirical evidence making them accessible to lay readers as well as academic specialists.
