In every economy, there are typically two types of financial markets; one is the capital market and the other is the money market. The function of both the markets is the same; both act as a link between the investors and the wealth creators. The fund gathered in this process is used to create wealth in the economy in the long run.

The former market deals in commodities and financial instruments in the form of long-term securities having a maturity of more than a year. A capital market is known for making the transactions between the investors and the companies smoother.

The money market is known for buying and selling securities that have short-term maturities, like less than a year, e.g. treasury bills and commercial papers.

Two types of capital markets

Let’s take a look at the two major types of capital markets:

  • Primary market – It is the most important type of capital market. Its key function is the formation of capital for the government, institutions, companies, etc. It aids investors in investing their savings and extra funds in companies that plan to start new projects or enterprises expanding their companies.
  • Secondary market – This is commonly known as the stock market. Here, the investors indulge in buying and selling securities in the form of debentures, shares, bills, bonds, etc.

The basic difference between the two markets is that the primary market issues only new securities whereas the secondary market deals with existing securities. No fresh issues are made in the secondary market.

Career opportunities in the capital market

When we talk of the capital market, there are unlimited rewarding career opportunities for individuals from different backgrounds, irrespective of age, gender, educational qualification to a certain level and area of interest. Also, liberalization in the Indian economy gives rise to opportunities in the capital markets for both national and international players. So, considering all these aspects, we can conclude that there are strong choices of a career in the capital market for people who want to pursue a future in this field.

Some of the sector-wise positions in the capital market are: 

  • Commercial Banking
  • Credit Analysis
  • Compliance
  • Real Estate
  • Portfolio Management
  • Risk Management
  • Insurance
  • Actuary
  • Underwriting
  • Government Contracting
  • Government Contract Analysis
