1. Capital Market and Efficiencies of BANK NIZWA in Oman
Capital market refers to a market where buyers and sellers trade financial products including securities, stock, and bonds. Such buying and selling practices can be undertaken by the institutes and individual entities. Different types of market efficiencies include informational efficiency for traders, allocative efficiency and operational efficiency of the capital market. According to the research study, information about market value and current market prices should be reflected in capital markets for information efficiency (Al-Habsi & Al-Amri, 2017). The rationality of investors and tractions supported with cost-effective practices ensure operational efficiency in the capital market. Many companies listed on Muscat Stock Market are following the strategies which promote efficiency in the capital market. Bank Nizwa Oman is one of those companies which are listed on Muscat Stock Market. The analysis shows that Bank Nizwa Oman is projecting all important information about its financial operations and outcomes for its investors. Information about corporate management and future projects of the Bank Nizwa enables the proposed investors to make the right decision about investment in the offered securities, stock, and bonds of the bank. According to the research study, investors invest in active management if the market is inefficient in a particular sector. Although, rational investors earn abnormal returns and profit from stock because of stock market growth and an increase in the stock prices. The researcher also concludes that macroeconomic variables also draw an impact on capital markets such as the stock market. An increase in interest rate changes investors' response towards interest-bearing securities and bonds. While the change in the market value of shares is also a turning point for investors regarding a particular listed company on Muscat stock exchange.
