Financial Development
Introduction
 

The importance of financial systems to economic growth has become even more pronounced in recent years; yet, there is still surprisingly little agreement about how to define and measure their development. To address this gap, the World Economic Forum has undertaken an ongoing initiative that aims to provide business leaders and policy-makers with a common framework for identifying and discussing the key factors in the development of global financial systems and markets.
