But it is self-evident in the economic sphere, and singularly in the financial sector, where changes have been the most deep and impressive. The market in which residents of different countries trade assets is called the international capital market. The international capital market is not really a single market; it is a group of closely interconnected markets in which asset exchange with some international dimension take place. The main actors in the international capital market are: commercial banks, large corporations, nonbank financial institutions, central banks, and other government agencies. The international capital market’s activities take place in a network of world financial centers linked by sophisticated communications systems.
