Capital accountCapital account
1. (Current definition) Since sometime in the 1990s, "capital account" refers to a minor component of international transactions, involving unilateral transfers of ownership of property. The common definition, below, describes what is now called the financial account. 2. (Common definition) A country's international transactions arising from changes in holdings of real and financial capital assets (but not income on them, which is in the current account). Includes FDI, plus changes in private and official holdings of stocks, bonds, loans, bank accounts, and currencies. 3. (Bretton-Woods definition) Same as common definition except excluding official reserve transactions. This definition was used under the Bretton Woods System of pegged exchange rates, but is less meaningful under floating exchange rates.
Market capitalisationMarket capitalisation
The market value of a quoted company which is calculated by multiplying its current share price by the number of shares in issue.e.g. Company A has 120 million shares in issue. The current market price is 96p. The market capitalisation is a shade over £115 million.The share prices of companies on the Official List of the London Stock Exchange move constantly in response to supply and demand, and as they move, so do market capitalisations. You can see what the market caps of these companies are by looking at the columns of prices in the financial press every day, or on websites.Of course, market caps calculated in this way do not necessarily reflect the actual market value of companies, as is shown when one company launches a takeover bid for another and (as frequently happens) pays a premium over the pre-bid price.Market caps are important for another reason, which is that some of the most important indices (especially the FTSE 100 and FTSE Mid 250) are based on them. Not only that - tracker funds make their investments on the basis of indices.
