CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.0.          BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

Mobilization of resources for national development has long been the central focus of development economist. As a result, the centrality of savings and investment in economic growth has been given considerable attention (Aigbonkan, 1995, Soyode 1990, Samuel 1996).

For sustainable growth and development, funds” most be effectively mobilized and allocated to enable business and the economy to harness their human, material and management resources for optional output.

The stock market is an economic institution, which promote efficiency in capital formation and allocation. The market enables government, banks and industries to raise long-term finance for new projects, expanding and modernizing commercial concern if capital are not provided to the key economic areas; especially industries where demand is governing and where they are capable of increasing production and productivity of all sectors of the economy, the rate of expansion of the economy of ten suffers.

A unique benefit of stock market to banks and corporate entities is the provision of long-term, non-debt financial capital. Through the issuance of equity securities, companies arid banks acquire perpetual capital for development through the provision of equity capital, the market also enable banks to avoid over reliance on debt financing thus, improving corporate debt-to-equity ratio.

The existing literature clearly shows that developed economy has explored the two channels through which resources mobilization affects the economic growth and development, money and capital market (Samuel 1996).

However, not the case in developing economics where emphasis was placed on money market with little consideration for capital market (Nyong 1997).

Since the introduction of the Structural Adjustment Programme (SAP) in Nigeria; the country’s stock market has grown very significantly (Allie 1996, Soyode 1990).

This is as a result of deregulation of the financial sector and the privatization exercise as well as the directive of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) requesting bank to increase their asset base, which exposed investors and banks to the significance of the stock market. Equity financing from the capital market became one of the cheapest and flexible source of finance from the capital market and remains a critical element in the sustainable development of the banking sector.

Through the stock market is growing, it is however characterized by characterized by complexities. These complexities arises from trend in globalization and increased variety of instruments being traded, equity option, derivatives of various forms, indeed futures etc. However, the central objectives of the stock exchanges worldwide remain the maintenance of the efficient markets with attendant benefit of economic growth. The link between Stock Market performance and Trading at Margin (economic growth) has often generated strong controversy among analysts based on their study of development and emerging market.

As economist develops, more funds are needed to meet the rapid expansion. The stock market serves as an irresistible tools in the mobilization and allocation of savings among competing uses, which are critical to the growth and efficiency of the banking sector. The determination of the other growth of the banking sector depends on how efficiently the stock market performs its allocation functions of capital.

As the stock market mobilizes savings, concurrently it allocates a large portion of it to the firms with relatively high prospects as indicated by its rates of returns and level of risk.

The importance of this function is that capital resources are channeled by the mechanism of the forces of demand and supply to those firms with relatively high aid increasing productivity thus, enhancing the expansion and growth of the banking sector.

1.1.     STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

It is no longer news that the per-capital income of Nigeria is low, compared with other countries having potentials and resources both natural and manmade. As a result of low per-capital income, bank has low capacity utilization due to the inability of the people to save and thus, make it difficult to accumulate fund which could be borrowed or lent to industries of relatively high prospects in order to increase the growth of the banking sector.

Therefore, my statement of problem lies on: What Role Can Nigerian Stock Exchange Play in Fund Mobilization / Raising for Individuals in Banking Industries.

1.2.    RESEARCH QUESTION

  1. Does Trading at Margin IS a poor strategy for capital market investment activity?
  2. What are the impacts of trading at margin on the Nigerian Stock Exchange?

Apart from the fact that the stock exchange market has an impact on the economic development in terms of how it helps stimulate industrial as well as financial growth and development of the Nigerian banking sector, other objectives of this study includes:

  1. To assess the role of the stock exchange in a developing economy like Nigerian
  2. To investigate the problems faced by the stock exchange
