Investment banks are a highly important part of the capital market. These companies are able to source investments, underwrite their securities, and bring shares to the general public. Additionally, and over the last 30 years – many investment banks have gone on to provide a number of other services outside of securities underwriting. These companies have become one-stop shops for many businesses that are looking to raise capital, seller business, acquire business, and engage in specialized financing activities. Many investment banks are now completely integrated with their commercial banking counterparts. As such, these businesses are always able to remain profitable and cash flow positive at all times. While there is no standard textbook definition for an investment bank as many companies call themselves, most commonly the companies are that are considered true investment banks engage thoroughly in securities underwriting. These businesses are able to charge anywhere from 3% to 10% of the overall offering.

Any major financial institution or investment bank needs a business plan. This document should include a three-year to five-year profit and loss statement, cash flow analysis, balance sheet, breakeven analysis, business ratios page, and lending rush ratios page. Many investment banks focus heavily on the income that is derived not only from securities underwriting but also asset management as well. Asset management has become one of the most major aspects for most investment banks as it generates highly recurring streams of revenue from the monthly fees that are debited from a customer’s account. Within the business plan as well, a full discussion regarding the target market should be included. This includes a number of businesses in the target market, their annual revenues, distribution of industries covered, and other relevant information relating to the businesses that the investment bank we working with from the onset of operations as well as through a five-year time..

An investment bank marketing plan is also essential to having this business become successful. Most importantly, many investment banks work with marketing firms that have a specialized expertise in financial firms given that certain disclosures must be made as part of their overall marketing campaign. Most investment banks have their attorneys thoroughly review any materials that are distributed to the general public given that certain disclosures must be made in accordance with regulations and laws. A presence on the Internet is now mandated for pretty much every financial firm that wants to be successful given that most companies will first search online to see the operating history of an investment bank for they choose to do business with them.

An investment bank SWOT analysis is frequently developed as well. This analysis focuses on the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats that are common within this industry. As it relates the strengths, most investment banks are always able to remain profitable as companies are to continue to need capital in order to expand their operations. As these banks work with a number of different industries – many of whom are immune from negative economic changes – their ability to remain profitable in all economic climates is very stable. For weaknesses, this is a highly regulated industry and any investment bank is going to need to have a substantial number of compliance officers in place to make sure that are operating within the letter of the law at all times. Pertaining to opportunities, many financial firms will look to hire associate bankers, acquire third-party investment banking firms, and develop new service lines in order to boost their revenues on a year-to-year basis. For threats, many investment banks face ongoing changes in regulatory matters. This trend is not expected to change anytime soon and it can be expected that having to deal with complex regulatory issues will be something that an investment bank needs to deal with in perpetuity.
