Developments in international banking and capital markets in 1986

Quarterly Bulletin 1987 Q1
Published on 01 June 1987

This article continues the annual series on international banking and capital market developments. The article is in four parts: an overview; separate sections on capital markets and international banking developments; and a review of borrowers. There are features on equity issues overseas and on sources of statistics on international borrowing.

  • The pace of innovation and deregulation in the world's financial markets slowed, but new issues on international capital markets continued to expand and banks' international interbank lending increased sharply.

  • Debt problems persisted among certain developing countries; debtor countries received little new bank lending, either spontaneous or associated with new money packages.

  • Events during the year illustrated particular kinds of problems that can arise when credit flows are channelled through the securities markets.

  • International financial markets were heavily influenced by the Japanese as intermediaries, investors and borrowers.
