||Is it Investing? Is it Banking? Is it financial investment in the banking sector? It is neither of these. Investment Banking is the business of raising capital for companies and advising them on financing and merger alternatives.
At a very macro level, Investment Banking is concerned with the primary function of assisting the capital markets in its function of capital intermediation, i.e. the movement of financial resources from those who have them (the investors), to those who need to make use of them for generating GDP (the issuers).
It is not one specific service or function. It is an umbrella term for a range of activities; the scope of investment banking includes all major capital market activities like underwriting, selling, and trading securities (stocks and bonds); private placements, providing financial advisory services, such as mergers and acquisition advice and managing assets.
Investment banks are included in the security and commodity brokers and dealers groups. These major groups include establishments engaged in the underwriting, purchase, sale or brokerage of securities and other financial contracts on their own account or for the account of others.
