Investment Banking

Investment banking is a financial service that assists companies and governments in raising capital by issuing and selling securities.

Investment banks also provide financial advice and services such as mergers and acquisitions, and assist in the trading of securities.

The investment banking industry is divided into two main areas: corporate finance and capital markets.

Corporate finance is the side of investment banking that deals with helping companies raise money by issuing and selling securities.

Capital markets is the side that deals with trading securities and providing financial advice.
