Investment banking is the business of providing financial advisory, strategic planning, and execution of complex transactions for corporations, governments, and institutions. This business specializes in orchestrating capital raising, mergers and acquisitions (M&A), initial public offerings (IPO), and underwriting securities, acting as a pivotal bridge between clients and global capital markets. Investment banks provide ancillary services such as market making, trading of derivatives and equity securities, FICC services (fixed income instruments, currencies, and commodities) or research (macroeconomic, credit or equity research). Most investment banks maintain prime brokerage and asset management departments in conjunction with their investment research businesses. As an industry, it is broken up into Bulge Bracket banks (full service, large cap institutions), Middle Market (focused on mid-level to smaller-sized businesses), and boutiques (small, specialized banks).
