Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Investment Banking and Securities Brokerage industry has endured extensive volatility since the onset of the financial crisis. Despite sweeping regulatory changes, intermittent scandals, large fines for misconduct and an uncertain political environment, the industry is expected to expand steadily over the five years through 2016-17. After the financial crisis the industry quickly rebounded as unstable conditions drove up both trading volumes and margins. However, some operators were severely affected by the financial crisis and were ill positioned to profit from the market conditions that followed.

Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

The industry displays a low level of capital intensity. IBISWorld estimates that for every £1.00 spent on capital, £14.36 is spent on labour. The industry is labour intensive, with employee costs absorbing close to half of industry revenue, which dwarfs capital costs. Many employees are highly paid due to valuable skills in client relations, sales, trading and portfolio management. Compensation also often includes a significant bonus component related to the amount of business brought in or trading performance. Over the past five years, capital costs have increased as fragmentation of exchanges and growth in alternative trading platforms have compelled firms to connect to multiple venues, often spread over different locations.

What is the Investment Banking & Securities Brokerage Industry?

Investment banks and securities brokers act as intermediaries between those wishing to raise capital (the sell side) and those able to provide it (the buy side). They also facilitate secondary securities trading. Services to the sell side include underwriting capital raisings and advising on mergers and acquisitions. On the buy side, services include research and trading. Investment banks also undertake proprietary trading on their own account.
