Financial systems around the world are currently undergoing many changes. These changes arise from competition, consolidation, information technology, product and geographic expansion of manufacturing, service and financial services firms, de-regulation and re-regulation. These changes are taking place within a volatile and uncertain economic environment, and have direct implications for the development, growth and stability of financial systems. This module aims to outline the fundamentals of financial systems. A central theme running through the module is the influence of technology and innovation along with the challenges that this poses to regulators.
