A capital market is a market for securities (debt or equity), where business enterprises (companies) and governments can raise long-term funds. It is defined as a market in which money is provided for periods longer than a year, as the raising of short-term funds takes place on other markets (e.g., the money market). The capital market includes the stock market (equity securities) and the bond market (debt). Financial regulators, such as the UK's Financial Services Authority (FSA) or the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), oversee the capital markets in their designated jurisdictions to ensure that investors are protected against fraud, among other duties.

Capital market refers to all the facilities and institutional arrangements for borrowing and lending term funds either medium or long term. The demand for long-term money capital comes predominantly from private sector manufacturing industries and from govt. for economic development. The supply of funds comes largely from individual savers, corporate savings, banks, insurance companies, specialized financing agencies and the govt.
