This chapter discusses the extraordinary growth in international stocks. Issuers tap international stock markets to increase the pool of available funds, lower costs of raising capital, expand their investor base, and/or avoid domestic regulatory complications. Investors move to international markets to improve portfolio performance and to lower risks. Both groups' interests have been furthered by the erosion of regulatory barriers, including exchange controls, limits on ownership, limits on participation in domestic markets, and obstructive listing and trading practices. Capital market integration is leading to a single world equity market. Investment houses stand prepared to make markets twenty-four hours a day in selected stocks. The infrastructure for such activity is being consolidated, sharpened, and challenged by new opportunities and competitive pressures.

Keywords:   capital market integration, regulatory barriers, international stock markets
