From the development of basic financial market infrastructure in frontier markets, to centres seeking the transition to a multidisciplinary global financial centre, the development of financial centre capabilities provides significant benefits for a country's economic growth.

This report identifies four key stages of financial centre development and explores the factors underpinning each different stage, including:

  • Business environment
  • Financial market infrastructure
  • People
  • Regulation
  • Connectivity
  • Critical mass

 The animated film provides an overview of the findings of the research.
