The financial system is a key influencer of the health and efficiency of an economy. The role of the financial system is to gather money from people and businesses that currently have more money than they need and transfer it to those that can use it for either business or consumer expenditures. This flow of funds through financial markets and institutions in the Australian economy is huge (in the billions of dollars), affecting business profits, the rate of inflation, interest rates and the production of goods and services. In general, the larger the flow of funds and the more efficient the financial system, the greater the economic output and welfare in the economy. It is not possible to have a modern, complex economy such as that in Australia, without an efficient and sound financial system. The global financial crisis (GFC) of late 2007?09 (and the ensuing European debt crisis), where the global financial market was on the brink of collapse with only significant government intervention stopping a catastrophic global failure of the market, illustrated the importance of the financial system. Financial Markets, Institutions and Money 3rd edition introduces students to the financial system, its operations, and participants. The text offers a fresh, succinct analysis of the financial markets and discusses how the many participants in the financial system interrelate. This includes coverage of regulators, regulations and the role of the Reserve Bank of Australia, that ensure the system?s smooth running, which is essential to a modern economy. The text has been significantly revised to take into account changes in the financial world.

Written by a former practitioner, this book fills a clear gap in the current literature for a practice-focused text that brings together the organizational structure, economics and governance of the finance industry – investment banking, wholesale banking and asset management - with the functions it performs such as mergers and acquisitions, IPOs, private equity, hedge funds, high frequency trading and the structuring of cash and synthetic ETFs and CDOs. It integrates the credit and capital markets by considering securitization as a "conversion" process between the two markets and money market mutual funds as a capital market alternative to bank deposits offered in the credit market. It analyzes the societal value of the industry as well as market and regulatory failure leading to crisis and hence the need for more appropriate governance structures and disciplining and control mechanisms for both banks and sovereign groupings such as the eurozone.
