The growing role of financial markets and institutions in the economy is sometimes referred to as financialization. It means the process by which financial markets determine the behavior of all actors, including financial institutions, enterprises, individual investors and households. Financial markets act on a number of socio-economic categories of society and shape many areas of life, at the same time increasing awareness about corporate social responsibility.
