The objective of this study is to investigate the role of stock market development on economic growth in Africa.

Our main findings are as follows: (i) countries with stock markets tend to grow faster compared to countries without stock markets, (ii) countries which are relatively developed and have stock markets tend to grow less faster compared to small countries with stock markets, (iii) Stock market development has a positive effect on economic growth, (iv) investment, human capital formation and openness positively influence economic growth in the Africa region, (v) macroeconomic instability (inflation) and government consumption impact economic growth negatively, and (vi) countries that are politically stable and less corrupt tend to grow faster.
