Investment banks are involved in assisting clients to raise capital by underwriting and acting as the client’s agent in the issuance of securities. Investment banks do not always issue the securities and act as agents for them, and can also only issue the securities, or only act as the agent for these securities. An investment bank can also assist companies with their merger and acquisitions, as well as provide additional services, like market making, trading of derivative, fixed income instruments commodities and equity securities.Unlike many other bank specializations, investment banks do not engage in deposit taking.
