Investment Banking


Investment banks generally fall into three groups, the very large “bulge bracket” banks, specialist firms that specialize in one or two industries, and small broker-dealers, who trade securities for their own benefit or for customers. Full-service investment banks usually provide both advisory and financing services, as well as the sales, market making, and research on a broad array of financial products, including equities, credit, rates, currency, commodities, and financial derivatives. It is very common for one bulge-bracket bank to be competitive in investment banking, commercial banking, asset management, private equity, venture capital, mortgage finance, and more. Investment bank clients include corporations, other financial institutions, pension funds, government agencies, and hedge funds.
