Financial Innovation

The creation of a new investment vehicle. For example, one may structure a derivative in a way that has never been done before.

financial innovation

the development by FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS of new financial products and processes for the transmission of money and the lending and borrowing of funds, for example, telephone banking services, direct debit systems, credit cards, etc. These developments have augmented the traditional means of transmitting money (cash, cheques) and may have served to increase the velocity of circulation of money. They have also increased the availability of CREDIT and, by creating new ‘NEAR MONEY’ assets, have served to extend the liquidity base of the economy. This has tended to make the application of MONETARY POLICY by the authorities more complex.
