How to Use Investment Banking

Investment banks – Investment banking helps companies and governments and their agents to raise money by issuing and selling securities/shares in the markets. They assist public and private corporations in raising funds in the capital markets, as well as in providing strategic advisory services for mergers, acquisitions and other types of financial transactions.


  1. Approach your selected Investment bank, ask for an Investment consultation.
  2. Ask the Investment Banker about the financial services such as mergers and acquisition advice, underwriting, public debt and equity securities, equity securities in private markets.
  3. You may want to just invest in a new company and stick with a solo investment strategy.
  4. You may want to invest in a number of investments, that will vary in type of company product or stocks and shares portfolios. Ask your investment banker about spread investments.
  5. Ask about Investment management, either for corporate pension funds, charities, private clients, either via direct investment for the more wealthy or via unit and investment trusts. (In the larger firms, the value of funds under management runs into many billions of pounds)


  • The aim of an Investment bank is to become a trusted advisor to their clients in all aspects of their business and personal investments.
