Financial Industry: Demand and Supply Drivers

Demand for financial products are driven by risk-reward assessments, which consider:

 Potential Yield
 Risk rating
 Availability of information
 Access to alternatives

The major supply drivers are :

The Financial Industry Or Financial Services Industry


     Investment Bankers

     Financial Planners


The finance industry is an industry in itself as well as an ancillary that supports other industries. Trade and commerce across the world would come to a standstill if there was no means to fund, pay and protect the transactions, hence the need for governments to support the financial services industry when companies that are too big to fail are close to collapse.
