Course Overview

Investment banking is that arm of banking or finance that provides services to corporations, governments and institutions through various offerings, such as underwriting, mergers and acquisitions, advisory services, etc. Unlike retail or commercial banks, investment banks do not accept deposits.

All activities in investment banking are classified as ‘buy-side’ or ‘sell-side’. The sell-side includes trading securities for cash and other securities while the buy-side provides advice to institutions who purchase or buy investment services.
