What Do Investment Banks Do?

Investment banks, in general, aid with large, complex financial deals. If the investment banker’s client is considering an acquisition, merger, or sale, they may offer advice on how much a firm is worth and how to organize a deal. Essentially, its services include underwriting new debt and equity securities for all sorts of businesses, assisting in the sale of securities, and assisting institutions and individual investors with mergers and acquisitions, reorganizations, and broker transactions. They may also produce the appropriate Stocks and Exchange Commission documents for a firm to go public and issue securities as a method of obtaining money for the client groups.
