Course Overview

Are you looking for a comprehensive guide that helps you understand how the investment banking industry functions?

Take advantage of an industry primer that will prepare you for investment banking interviews, internships, and your first days on the job. The course introduces you to the four main areas of investment banking activity: capital markets, advisory, trading and brokerage, and asset management. Then upon learning the foundational concepts, we delve deeper into the intricacies of each investment banking business line with dedicated course sections to each. The capital markets division provides equity and debt underwriting services. Equity Capital Markets (ECMs) serves companies that raise equity in Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) and Seasoned Equity Offerings (SEOs). This part of the Investment Banking course addresses questions related to the motivation of companies to get listed, investors in an IPO, various IPO price-setting mechanisms employed by investment bankers, the execution of an IPO, and much more. The Debt Capital Markets (DCMs) division works with debt issuances. You’ll learn about the four types of bonds, why companies issue bonds instead of borrowing capital from commercial banks, the purpose of securitization and loan syndication, and much more. The advisory division of investment banks offers M&A and Restructuring services to companies. Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) is one of the most popular areas of investment banking. In this section, you’ll gain valuable knowledge about the practical reasons for a company’s desire to acquire another firm, the differences between corporate and financial buyers, a typical M&A deal process, and payment options in an M&A deal. The trading and brokerage section of the courses focuses on the different types of securities traded by investment banks and the outlook of trading activities in an ever more algorithmic-driven environment. The asset management activity of investment banks is discussed briefly by providing an overview of the types of asset management services offered by investment banks and making a risk-return comparison of different investment asset classes. This comprehensive Investment Banking training course gives you a ringside view of how the banking industry functions. Make sure to enroll today, and see you on the inside.
