After a very first activity in March 2020, we were happy to be back in Ethiopia for the organisation of a course on the development of capital markets, with the financial support of the Luxembourg Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs and in cooperation with the Ethiopian Bankers Association and the Embassy of Luxembourg in Addis Ababa.
Professionals from the banking sector were actively engaged in 5 intensive days of discussions with our expert Mr Philippe Maclot on a very topical subject for Ethiopia.
Developing Capital Markets: how to attract foreign capital and build efficient portfolios
A developed financial market is a critical pillar of economic growth for a country. It is also the basis for an important alternative source of long-term finance for productive investments, which helps the banking system to match long-term investments with available capital.
In this context, the course will study alternative ways for an improved distribution of wealth and how developing countries can use financial markets for growth purposes. More information
Capital Markets: Practical Analysis of Mechanisms and Study of Principal Investment Types
A developed financial market is a critical pillar of economic growth for a country. It is based on an important alternative source of long-term finance for productive investments, which helps with the availability of capital.
A developed financial market also encourages domestic savings and personal investments that are essential for faster industrialization. In addition, it encourages broader ownership of financial assets by small savers. Ultimately it allows them to benefit from the country's economic growth combined with an improved distribution of wealth.
