Merchant Banking Services - Industry Market Research Report

Merchant Banking Services

Impaired capital markets and falling asset valuations have particularly damaged small merchant banks in recent years. However, over the five years to 2022, general improvements in private equity supply and demand for alternative assets are anticipated to benefit merchant banks. Nevertheless, mounting regulation in the financial services sector concerning conflicts of interest is expected to limit revenue growth and profit margins.
