Welcome to a comprehensive web site on investment banking careers. Investment Banks help companies and governments issue
securities, help investors purchase securities, manage financial assets, trade securities
and provide financial advice. The top investment banks including
Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan
and Morgan Stanley
are said to be in the bulge bracket.
Other investment banks are regionally oriented or
situated in the middle market (e.g. Piper Jaffray).
Others are small, specialized firms called boutiques
which might be oriented toward an industry vertical, bond-trading, M&A advisory,
technical analysis or program trading. Firms have lots of different areas and groups
within them. In most firms, there is sales and trading which works with owners of
securities, investment banking which works with issuers of securities (firms and
governments) and capital markets which goes in between the other two.
