Abstract

We provide a brief review and analysis of recent trends in international financial integration. In particular, we highlight the asymmetric nature of financial globalization, with the scale of cross-border positions among the advanced economies growing more quickly than for emerging market economies and developing countries. We investigate the sources of this divergent pattern and discuss the factors that could shape financial globalization in the coming years.
