Have you ever
wondered how corporations set up their company stock and how it is
all sold? It's a complicated process, and fortunately for the
corporations, investment banks are available to take care of it.
It's not as easy as telling a stock exchange that you have stock to
buy. The investment bank has to set everything up.
Generally, investment banks raise capital. Capital is the money
companies use to build their business. When a company needs money to
expand, manufacture goods, or do whatever they need necessary to
progress and they don't have that money, they need to find a way to
get it. They can either issue bonds as debt securities or they can
issue stock. Investment banks help them take care of this process.
They may help do any number of financing activities from stock to
real estate and beyond.
There are investment banks all over the world, but specifically in
the UK, there are also many great banks available. Sachsmann Capital
Partners LLP provides real estate and acquisition financing,
European Risk Capital focuses on financial services and real estate
and other risk advisory and capital raising activities, and
Stockopedia in London covers the US stock market. This is just a
small sample of UK investment banks and what they have to offer
their clients. You can find lists of banks available in your area
Other Investment banks venture out much further beyond simply stocks
and real estate. Each bank has their own unique set of skills and
specialties. Many will have the same basic functions but then
specialize as well. If there is a specific need you are looking to
fill, you need to do research to find out which banks will give you
the benefits you are looking for. Obviously, if you aren't interest
in real estate, you don't need a bank that specializes in real
estate but in the area you are interested in. You want to get the
best service and a bank that specializes can do that for you in most
Investment banks also provide advice on mergers and acquisitions
which are very common among corporations who are looking to grow and
improve their company. These banks also provide services for
individual clients including derivatives trading, foreign exchange
trading, commodities, and equity trading. If you are in need of any
of these services, a good UK investment bank should be able to help
