Quick Summary of Investment Banking


Investment Banking is a division of the bank that provides a series of services for business clients. A small portion of these services include underwriting, working on mergers and acquisitions, creating new bond and stock issues to the market, brokering deals, and acting as a middleman between issuers and investors. Most often, investment bankers deal with institutional investors. Often investment banks work as a syndicate on new security products as well.
