Abstract
This study examines the evolution of capital flows in sub-Saharan Africa since 2010, in particular portfolio and cross-border bank flows in frontier markets. It discusses the macroeconomic policies and macroprudential policies that these countries have designed and/or implemented to reduce risks from the inherent volatility of these flows, and looks at how such policies might need to be strengthened as these countries become more integrated with the global financial system. It also examines the appropriate role for capital flow measures (CFMs).
