about this item

Global Financial Development Report 2015 focuses on the ability of financial systems to sustainably extend the maturity of financial contracts for private agents. The challenges of extending the maturity structure of finance are often considered to be at the core of effective, sustainable financial development. Sustainably extending long-term finance may contribute to the objectives of higher growth and welfare, shared prosperity and stability in two ways: by reducing rollover risks for borrowers, thereby lengthening the horizon of investments; and by increasing the availability of long-term financial instruments, thereby allowing households to address their lifecycle challenges.The aim of the report is to contribute to the global policy debate on longterm finance. It builds upon findings from recent and ongoing research,lessons from operational work, as well as on inputs from financial sector professionals and researchers both within and outside the World BankGroup. Benefitting from new worldwide datasets and information on financial development, it will provide a broad and balanced review of theevidence and distill pragmatic lessons on long-term finance and related policies.This report, the third in the Global Financial Development Report series, follows the second issue on Financial Inclusion and the inaugural issue,Rethinking the Role of the State in Finance. The Global Financial Development Report 2015 will be accompanied by a website worldbank.org/financialdevelopment containing extensive datasets, research papers, and other background materials as well as interactive features.Table of ContentsOverview* Chapter 1: Long-Term Finance and Economic Development* Chapter 2: The use of Long-Term Finance by Firms and Households* Chapter 3: The Provision of Long-Term Finance by securities markets* Chapter 4: The Provision of Long-Term Finance by Financial InstitutionsAlso Available GLOBAL FINANCIAL DEVELOPMENT REPORT 2014Financial InclusionNovember 2013. 222 pages.
