Investment banks help companies and governments and their agencies to raise money by issuing and selling securities in the primary market. They assist public and private corporations in raising funds in the capital markets (both equity and debt), as well as in providing strategic advisory services for mergers, acquisitions and other types of financial transactions.
The leading investment banks including Merrill lynch,Goldman sachs,salomon smith Barney etc.
An MBA (Finance) from a good institute,or a course of CFA will definitely help you .

Investment banks are involved with helping public and private companies raise funds (equity and debt) in the capital market. They are also known to give sound and helpful tips on acquisitions and mergers. Investment bankers come with a financially viable idea that is feasible and profitable for their clients. Once the client is happy and gives his mandate, the investment bank takes it upon itself to organize all the materials needed for the transaction to roll and to see the execution of the deal to fruition.

Most investment banks are known to make maximum revenue from sales and trading of financial products. This is the front office work of an investment bank. The other functions of the front office investment banks also deals in research, where these banks research companies and write reports on their prospects, with ratings like "buy" and "sell." The back office of investment banking usually deals with data-checking and analysing the credit risk associated with the daily trade transactions done by their client companies.

Believe it or not, even investment bankers find it difficult to describe what exactly investment banks do! This has to do with the sheer complexity and enormity of the financial transactions involved.

institutional clients and high net worth individuals. They offer a range of
Financial Services like Capital Raising, Research, M&A, Advisory and
Capital Market Investment Services. Prominent Investment Banks include JP
