INVESTMENT BANKING COURSE OVERVIEW

BASED ON A STANDARD 20 SESSION COURSE


(SESSION DURATION 75 MINS.)

Background

This course offers an understanding of what is called ‘CORE INVESTMENT


BANKING’ which deals with the main activity profile and service basket of
investment banks.

Nature of the Course and Objectives

1. Core Investment banking involves transaction origination and structuring. It does not
deal with secondary markets, stock exchange administration, portfolio management, asset
management or trading strategies which are allied to investment banking business but do
not form part of it per se. This course is not meant for those interested in secondary
market operations such as stock trading, dealing and derivatives. Core
investment banking deals with Primary Markets and Corporate Advisory.

2. This is not a quantitative course using of mathematical and/ or statistical tools.


At the same time, it is not a theoretical course either. It will have a combination of
financial strategy, problems and cases. The project work will involve financial modelling.
Since i-banking is very regulated, study of regulatory and policy framework to a
minimum extent will be involved.

3. The course provides an understanding of the global paradigm of investment banking, the
policy and regulatory framework, business perspective and transactional approach to the
subject. It provides an in depth understanding of the intricacies and transactions in core
investment banking consisting of public offers in national and international capital
markets, buybacks and de-listings, private equity, corporate restructuring, mergers and
acquisitions.

4. The course will provide in-depth understanding of deal structuring, pricing, term sheets
and transaction processes involved in various transactions as well as associated service
aspects and regulations in the Indian market with related comparatives in US and UK
markets.
