CHAPTER ONE

1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

       Stock market development and economic growth is not a virgin issue in economic literature and it has its origin from the concept provided by Schumpeter in 1912. The role of stock market in mobilizing resources from surplus units and allocating same to deficit units is a stimulus to investigate development in Nigeria’s stock market in relation to economic growth.

       To accelerate economic growth and development in Africa has propelled the establishment of many stock markets in many African nations. Yartey et al., (2009) Note that reforms in the financial system of most African countries are focused to the development of the stock market to help in capital accumulation through effective financial intermediation.

       This is because of the vital role of finance in economic growth and development of developing countries. Emerging economies are faced with financial constraints which are due to underdeveloped nature of the financial system. Oke et al., (2010) opine that sustainable growth and development will be attained through effective intermediation function of the stock market.   

       The growth of an economy depends on the level of development in the financial system which may be banks based or market based. In the bank based financial system, the banking system plays the greater role of capital mobilization for economic development compared to the stock market. On the other hand, in stock market based financial system, the stock market is seen as heaven for mobilization and allocation of resources for long term economic growth and development (DemirgucKunt et al, 2007).

       The main essence of the stock market is to consolidate growth in the financial systems, and enhance the consequent impact of the latter on economic development. According to Yartey and Adjasi (2007), the establishment of stock markets in Africa is expected to boost domestic savings and increase the quantity and quality of investments. Singh (2007) emphasized that in principle, the stock market is expected to accelerate economic growth by providing a boost to domestic savings thereby increasing the quantity and the quality of investment 

       States that in bank-oriented financial systems such as Germany and Japan, banks play a leading role in mobilizing savings, allocating capital, overseeing the investment decisions of corporate managers, and in providing risk management vehicles, while in market-oriented financial systems such as England and the United States, securities markets share centre stage with banks in terms of getting society’s savings to firms, exerting corporate control, and easing risk management. Nigeria financial system is bank-oriented as firms’ source financial resources mostly from the banks.

       The stock market is seen as the market for the “big guys”, that is, firms’ with great financial muscle. However, due to the developing nature of the Nigeria stock market and the financial system in general, only few firms are listed on the exchange when compared to its counterpart in South Africa.
