Investment Banking 101
In this Graphy, I'll cover the basics of an investment bank in terms that anyone can understand. I will provide clarifications for any industry jargon or concepts that I might be referring to, so that you can both comprehend and advance your knowledge in this space. I will walk through each business arm of an investment bank, giving you a sense of the functions of each, the role they play in corporate finance, and how they make money for the bank.I will then give you a sense of what to expect when working at an investment bank, covering the main work responsibilities, expectations on quality of life, and of course the all important compensation and exit opportunities. Lastly, I will give you a practitioner's insights on how to go about breaking into this seemingly exclusive industry, and provide you with the right guidance and tools to prepare for a potential interview. This Graphy is for anyone who was unable to take the relevant courses in college, or was never given an opportunity to learn about this industry. It's for anyone who has already taken a few finance courses, and had trouble understanding the concepts presented or had doubts on how much of it was actually useful in practice. It's for anyone who truly has a curiosity and a thirst for knowledge, and is serious about understanding this industry. It's for anyone who has the ambition and drive to work towards their dream career, but just needs the right guidance to break into it.
