Case Studies on Investment Banking

An Investment Bank is a financial institution that deals with raising capital, trading in securities and managing corporate mergers and acquisitions. Investment banks profit from companies and governments by raising money through issuing and selling securities in the capital markets (both equity, bond) and insuring bonds (selling CDSes, or credit default swaps), as well as providing advice on transactions such as mergers and acquisitions.

To perform these services in the United States, an adviser must be a licensed broker-dealer, and is subject to SEC (FINRA) regulation. Until the late 1980s, the United States maintained a separation between investment banking and commercial banks. Click here to read more…

Abstract: Diversification in capital markets is an accepted investment strategy. On the other hand Corporate diversification has drawn many opponents especially agency theorists who argue that executives must not diversify their firms. Instead, they must pay out the ‘free cash flows’ used to make acquisitions as dividends so that shareholders can diversify on their own. The ‘conglomerate discount’ of diversified firms in stock markets confirmed this argument and compelled many firms to refocus by selling-off non-core units from the 1980s.
