Shadow banking, Securitization, Financial intermediation, Liquidity, Financial regulation

The paper noted that Nigeria is yet to make significant policy impact on shadow banking in spite of its inherent systemic risk and regulatory arbitrage concerns on the economy. ln addition, there is neither data collection nor information management frameworks to measure its size, performance and impact on the economy. The paper therefore, recommends the design of an appropriate policy framework for shadow banking, efficient information management and the keying-in into FSB's global strategies; and concludes that a properly managed shadow financial activities could be a veritable transmission channel for effective and efficient monetary policy implementation in the economy.
