Abstract: The main purpose of this paper is to investigate the relationship between financial sector development and economic growth taking into consideration the role of institutions quality. Our sample is on a group of 143 countries observed during the period of 2006-2013. The sample is dived into 100 developing and 43 developed countries. Using structural GMM the paper shows that financial sector plays a crucial role in economic development and growth for the whole sample as well as for developed and developing countries. However, the results show that unlike developing countries, developed countries enjoyed the presence of proper institutions in their countries which in turn have contributed further to the development of their financial sector.
