Investment / Merchant Banking - Investment banking comprises two major businesses. One is the advisory /corporate finance role which entails mergers and acquisitions. This would entails understanding valuations, finding targets , negotiation and compliance with legal regulations. The second role is what is more popularly called equity capital market role. This entails helping raise funds from investors or the public . So it may entail working on IPOs or institutional offerings.


Corporate Banking- This role entails the entire plethora of banking services required by corporate. Corporate can be divided into largely two sections , large corporate and MSME which is medium and small enterprises. A corporate banker would thus have companies as his clients and service them.

Fund Management- As a fund manager , one is an important decision maker typically at a mutual fund . The fund manager has a good overall understanding of macro factors which affect the market as well as the micro factors about which company to invest in. He invests money in stock market , debt market , directly into companies etc depending upon his fund mandate.

Equity Research & Sales- The role of equity researcher is to find out the correct value of the stock which is trading on the stock exchange doing various types of research namely fundamental and technical analysis.
