Investment Banking For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Investment banking has a big impact on the world you live in, whether you have investments or not, and understanding what investment bankers do is important. Part of investment banking has to do with mergers and acquisitions, like why companies buy other companies and what’s in it for them. Even people who aren’t big on investing sometimes get the urge to be part of an initial public offering, more commonly known as an IPO. If visions of yachts and Bentleys are dancing in your head, we’ll disabuse you of those dreams, while letting you know what it really means to get in on an IPO.
