Types of Investment Banking Jobs
Mergers and Acquisitions Jobs
The M&A is a type of investment banking jobs that includes giving advice on mergers (two companies merge as one) and acquisitions (one company buys a part or all of another). The difference between a merge and an acquisition is that after the merge a new company comes into existence, whereas after the acquisition an already existing company has grown bigger.
Usually you should be an investment analyst for three years, starting right after graduation, and then proceed to associate for another three years. If you have done a great Mergers and Acquisition job, you might get promoted to being a Vice President or maybe later to a Director and a Managing Director position.
Investment Banking Analyst jobs in the field of M&A involve calculating financial models and analyzing information of the companies and making up pitch books. As a Senior M&A banker you tend to focus more on creating relationships with potential clients and winning new clients.
Equity Capital Markets Jobs
Equity capital markets (ECM) bankers as a type of investment banking job assist companies to raise money by issuing shares. As being underwriters, they guarantee that the shares the company is issuing will be sold at a certain price. If the bank is incapable of finding enough buyers to purchase the shares at the price previously agreed with the client, the bank must buy the shares itself. These shares could be part of an initial public offering (IPO) or a rights issue. Investment Bankers, who could gain experience in equity capital market jobs, can enjoy great career development options. For instance, they could switch to private equity investment management jobs, equity research jobs, or equity portfolio management jobs within the asset management and hedge fund industry.
Debt Capital Markets Jobs
Debt capital markets (DCM) professionals, sometimes also called fixed income markets, handle debt that can be sold in the form of bonds, including treasury bonds issued by governments, investment grade bonds issued by companies, and high yield bonds, which are riskier and as a result pay a higher rate of return. Investment Banking candidates, who had experience in debt capital market jobs could go further in their career with credit analyst jobs, fixed income research analyst jobs, or portfolio management jobs.
