The capital market is the main mechanisms that efficiently mobilize, allocate, and monitor the utilization of the economic resources. The capital market links and transfers capital between businesses that need funding both in the public and private sectors with the saving parties who want to invest. This has effectively increased a diversity of alternatives in fund mobilizing and investments. The benefits of capital market are maximized through the contributions to the development of the country’s potential and competitiveness, supporting business growth, diversifying risks and creating a balanced financial system.
