Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Investment Banking and Securities Brokerage industry has endured extensive volatility since the onset of the financial crisis.

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 - Starting a New Business Chapter

Thus, these bankers may be relegated to serving medium-size firms.
