Corporate and Investment Banking
Investment banking includes the development, marketing and trading of a large range of securities and other financial instruments on the world’s financial markets. These include equities, which are stocks or shares, fixed income or bonds, or based on commodities and currencies. It also involves the advisory of public and private entities surrounding the acquisition, divestiture or merger of assets or other private or public entities.
Corporate banking is defined as those products and services that relate to the lending activities between a bank and its clients. This could be a simple secured or unsecured loan, or it could be a highly sophisticated structured finance transaction with many different banks or syndicates involved in the transaction. Cash management and trade finance also fall under the definition of corporate banking.
Often referred to as the “Buy-Side,” Asset management is a systematic process of investing, maintaining, and disposing of assets cost-effectively with the goal of a positive and rewarding return on the initial principle. The company or individual will invest on behalf of its clients and give them access to a wide range of traditional and alternative product offerings that would not be available to the average investor.
