Categories: Investing and Trading, Economics,

Transparency is a measure of how much information you have about the markets where you invest, the corporations whose stocks or bonds you buy, or the mutual funds or other investments you select. For example, in order to achieve maximum transparency in US markets, the securities and exchange commission (SEC) requires corporations to disclose all information that might have an impact on their financial status so that investors can make fully informed decisions.Real-time trading information, increasingly available to individuals as well as institutional investors, and linked pricing systems are other steps toward complete transparency.
