In this process, it allows both firms and households to share risks associated with business. Moreover, capital market enables the valuation of firms on an almost continuous basis and plays an important role in the governance of the corporate sector. Dynamics of capital market require changes in the laws, rules and regulations on a continuing basis. Consequently, new terms and concepts and their definitions are added to capital market lexicon on a regular basis.
