The Global Investment Banking and Brokerage industry's focus on recovery has been damaged by persistent interest rate stability and regulatory changes over the five years to 2016. Central bank monetary policies, coupled with regulatory changes that either restrict or eliminate proprietary trading, have harmed the industry's fees and profit margins from trading services. In the coming years, the industry's largest players should benefit from the expected uptick in interest rate volatility. In addition, improving cyclical trends are anticipated to return the industry to growth over the next five years.
This industry covers global investment banking and brokerage activities. Firms provide a diverse range of securities services, including investment banking and broker-dealer services. They also offer banking and asset management services and engage in proprietary trading (trading their own capital for a profit).
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
