Of that amount, the largest part by far was in the G4 countries, which accounted for 96 percent of the total amount issued globally. In dollar amounts, the G4 were followed by the Asian Tigers, which issued a total of $262 billion over the sample period, with the Emerging Markets well behind with only $162 billion issued. The markets in all three groups of countries increased rapidly over time, with the Asian Tiger bond markets growing by nearly 900 percent between the first and third subperiods.

In contrast, in the G4 countries bonds financed 51 percent of total private investment. 9 percent over 1991-95. That puts the Emerging Markets roughly on par with the G4 in terms of stock issues relative to GDP, but, like bonds, stock issues were not important sources of financing, representing only about 7 percent of total private investment over 1991-95. This was, however, slightly above the G4 level of 5 percent.
