Stock Market Development in Africa: do all macroeconomic financial intermediary determinants matter?

Simplice Asongu

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This study brings light to some financial intermediary development factors that could negate stock market development, as well as those that could improve it. Using a panel of eight countries, from 1989 to 2008, we derive indexes via Principal Component Analysis; based on which panel fixed effect regressions are performed. The principal edge of this work is that, in policy making, not all aspects of financial intermediary development should be prioritized for stock market development.
