Investment Banking & Securities Dealing in the US
Despite fee growth from the Investment Banking and Securities Dealing industry's traditional underwriting and advisory services, both cyclical and structural influences on trading activity have ultimately harmed revenue for operators in recent years. Industry revenue is expected to decline over the five years to 2016. Much of the industry's recent trouble has stemmed from fixed income, commodities and currencies (FICC) trading operations. Higher capital requirements and the trend of transitioning derivative trading to central clearinghouses are anticipated to structurally dampen the industry's FICC revenue. Because competing in FICC requires scale and massive investments in technology and compliance, boutique investment banks have alternatively focused on merger and acquisition advising.
This industry is composed of companies and individuals that provide a range of securities services, including investment banking and broker-dealer trading services. They also offer banking and wealth management services and engage in proprietary trading (trading their own capital for a profit) to varying degrees. Investment banking services include securities underwriting and corporate financial services while trading services include market making and broker-dealer services.
