Abstract

Abstract
The D8 group pursues different goals, and one of the most important ones is in the field of economy and economic development of the member countries. The present study thoroughly assesses financial integration and its effective variants. Due to the relatively low physical capital interruption and the more intrinsic consumption fluctuations, developing economies benefit from financial integration. Four criteria have been used to assess the financial integration among the D8 group: foreign assets, foreign debts, volume criteria, and investment criteria. The data is based on Eviews software, and the least-squares method (EGLS) for 2000-2019 has been analyzed. The present study results confirm the effect of financial development and international trade integration on financial integration, and between the two, based on the estimated model coefficients, the impact of international trade integration on financial integration is more significant. Also, among the three criteria of financial development, the development of the banking sector is not a good measure of the financial development in countries and has less of an impact on D8 Group's financial integration.
