Investment Banking & Securities Dealing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Investment Banking & Securities Dealing in the US

Strong returns in a wide variety of financial markets and continued macroeconomic growth have benefited operators in the Investment Banking and Securities Dealing industry over the five years to 2018. Industry revenue growth was hindered during most of the period due to structural changes to the trading services that industry operators were permitted to conduct. However, operators are expected to benefit from numerous trends in 2018, including the total value of initial public offerings increasing. Boutique investment banks have focused on merger and acquisition advising, increasing their share of this product line, a trend that is expected to continue. The industry as a whole is expected to continue benefiting from continued macroeconomic activity and rising interest rates over the five years to 2023.

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.

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.
