Capital markets are financial markets that bring together buyers and sellers to trade stocks, bonds, currencies and other financial assets. Capital markets are where savings and investment are channelled between providers—people or institutions that have capital to lend or invest—and those who need it. These markets connect suppliers with capital seekers and provide a place where they can trade stocks. The primary market is when a company directly issues securities in exchange for shares.
Once funds are invested and securities are issued in exchange, investors can decide to sell their securities to other investors on the secondary market. Secondary markets play an important role in capital markets because they create liquidity by giving investors the confidence to buy securities. New capital is raised through the issuance and sale of stocks and bonds to investors in the primary capital market, and traders and investors then buy and sell these securities to each other in the secondary capital market, but the company receives no new capital.
Borrowed capital can be raised through bank loans or through bonds issued on the bond market. Financial capital is raised through the capital markets in two ways: by selling bonds, similar to loans, that the company will later repay with interest, or by selling shares, which are sold in exchange for partial ownership of the company. The company will raise the necessary capital through the stock markets – the stock exchange – or through the debt markets.
Capital markets enable companies to raise long-term funds by providing a market for securities, both debt and equity. Capital markets operated by a regulated stock exchange may refer to equity markets rather than debt, bond, fixed income, money, derivatives, and commodities markets.
Capital Markets is a trading system platform that transfers capital from investors willing to use their excess capital to businesses that require capital to fund various projects or investments. Through healthy capital markets, entrepreneurs can obtain the financial capital they need to build a successful business. Companies have also reduced the risks and costs of acquiring financial capital because they have reliable markets in which to obtain funding.
Companies that raise capital may seek private placements through business angels or venture capitalists, but may raise a larger amount through an initial public offering (IPO), when the stock is first publicly listed on a stock exchange. In this nascent equity market, risk mitigation activities are organized by a small number of specialized structured credit companies and placed by a small number of specialized investors in non-banks.

Capital markets provide vital funding that impacts people’s lives in many ways, from starting a business to expanding an existing business or providing investment opportunities for those who are planning for the future. Capital markets offer a range of sometimes complex products that allow companies and banks to not only raise capital but also hedge (or protect themselves) from risk. Financial markets contain a range of market, commodity and price risks for which policies and procedures are in place to help identify, monitor, measure and control risks.
