This comprehensive Handbook deftly examines key aspects of financial integration, providing an overview of contemporary research and new perspectives. Employing state-of-the-art econometric methods to obtain new empirical evidence, it will be critical for designing optimal policies, and appropriate investment and risk management strategies.

Guglielmo Maria Caporale brings together a wide range of contributors with different approaches to measuring and dissecting financial integration to form an extensive analysis on the topic. Organised into six thematic sections, the Handbook first details new measures of financial integration, linkages across markets, and the role of the foreign exchange market and institutions. It goes on to address financial integration in the banking sector, European financial integration, and diverse policy issues that arise in this context, giving a comprehensive insight into an ever-expanding sector.

With new perspectives and evidence on various dimensions of financial integration, this Handbook will be an indispensable resource for academics working in the field of international finance. Its investigation of policy and investment implications of the findings will also provide valuable insights for policy-makers and market participants.
