Investment banking is a sophisticated sector traditionally carrying out financial advisory work. For instance, a big company might ask for the bank’s help if it intends to borrow some capital in the bond market, purchase another company or float itself on the volatile stock market. In this circumstance, the investment bank such a Madison Street Capital, will act as an independent adviser or pretty much like an accountant or a solicitor, using its superior expertise to assist its client in return for a fixed fee.
Nonetheless, investment banks are involved in other things quite different from being just a financial dealer or adviser. They deal directly with the financial markets for their own account. For starters, they advise sellers and buyers on negotiations, business valuations, structuring and pricing of transactions involved in mergers and acquisitions.
Secondly, they’re involved in sales, trading and equity research, matching up buyers and sellers as well as buying and selling securities out of their accounts to facilitate the trading of bonds.
Thirdly, in addition to offering important functions such as mergers & acquisitions advisory typically regarded as ‘front office’ functions, investment banks offer financial control, corporate treasury, risk management, corporate strategy, operations and technology, and compliance as critical ‘back office’ functions.
Fourthly, following the cancellation of the Glass-Steagall in 2000, investment banks can now offer traditional off-limits amenities such as loans in commercial banking.
