The Evolution of Banking
Banks are just one part of the world of financial institutions, standing alongside investment banks, insurance companies, finance companies, investment managers and other companies that profit from the creation and flow of money. As financial intermediaries, banks stand between depositors who supply capital and borrowers who demand capital. Given how much commerce and individual wealth rests on healthy banks, banks are also among the most heavily regulated businesses in the world.
Banks have been around since the first currencies were minted, perhaps even before that, in some form or another. Currency, particularly the use of coins, grew out of taxation. In the early days of ancient empires, a tax of on healthy pig per year might be reasonable,…...

...all know that Bank is nothing but a financial institution. And it’s a very much well known word to all of us. Bank actually serves as a financial intermediary. The term "Bank" may refer to one of several related types of entities like: Central bank, State- owned Commercial bank, Private Commercial bank or Merchant bank, Foreign Commercial bank, Specialized Development bank, etc. But when we use the term bank it generally means ‘commercial bank’ that collects the deposit from surplus unit of the society and then lends the deposits to the deficit units of the society. But the new thing is that how it operates and presenting its activities for the purpose of serving customer requirements to increase their well-being in the sense of wealth. Banks also provide many services for clients to make their life easy in this busy environment. In this competitive environment in today’s world, the entire bank increases their facilities in favor of their customers to retain them and capture more share of the market to be leader. The whole banking system is based on the Interest system. But according to the Islamic rules interest is not legal. So many people, who could be the potential customers of Bank, feel not to engage themselves in the banking system. To facilitate them in addition of the Conventional banking System there is another System we can see a banking world that run according to Shariah. This system established in Bangladesh on 13th March 1983, named Islamic Bank Bangladesh......

Investment Bank

...INVESTMENT BANK Definition:- Investment bank is a financial institution that assists individuals, corporations, and governments in raising capital by underwriting and or acting as the client's agent in the issuance of securities. An investment bank may also assist companies involved in mergers and acquisitions and provide ancillary services such as market making, trading of derivatives and equity securities, and FICC services (fixed income instruments, currencies and commodities). Investment banks do not take deposits. There are two main lines of business in investment banking. Trading securities for cash or for other securities (e.g. facilitating transactions, market-making), or the promotion of securities (e.g. underwriting, research, etc.) is the "sell side", while buy side is a term used to refer to advising institutions concerned with buying investment services. Private equity funds, mutual funds, life insurance companies, unit trusts, and hedge funds are the most common types of buy side entities. An investment bank can also be split into private and public functions with an information barrier which separates the two to prevent information from crossing. The private areas of the bank deal with private insider information that may not be publicly disclosed, while the public areas such as stock analysis deal with public information. List of the bank: 1) CIMB Investment Bank Berhad 2) RHB Investment Bank Berhad 3) Alliance......

Investment Bank Services

...Investment banks Services 1. Making an acquisition/ effecting a buyout (mergers and acquisition): With increasing competitive pressures being placed on businesses and the trend towards globalization, companies are engaging more and more in M&A activity. Many companies looking to expand or streamline their business will use investment banks for advice on potential targets and/or buyers. This normally will include a full valuation and recommended tactics. The investment bank's role in mergers and acquisitions falls into one of either two buckets: seller representation or buyer representation (also called "target representation" and "acquirer representation"). One of the main roles of investment banking in mergers and acquisitions is to establish fair value for the companies involved in the transaction. Investment banks are experts at calculating what a business is worth. They are also able to predict how that worth could be altered (i.e., what happens to the value of a company in a number of different scenarios and what those potential futures would mean financially). Financial models are constructed by investment banks to capture the most important fixed and variable financial components that could influence the overall value of a company.  Investment banks do not just rely on buyers and sellers approaching them. They will also source deals by studying the market themselves and approaching companies with their own strategic ideas (i.e., they might suggest that......

Report on Investment Theory

...our investment simulation project, we started out with TK. 10, 00,000 cash at our disposal which we invested in the trading of Dhaka Stock Exchange (DSE) stocks, which is a bullish market. However, investing in such a volatile market required good initial research, investment strategies, and a well-diversified portfolio .Since this was a three-phase project, some adjustments were made to offset market downturns and ultimately increase the portfolio value in our account. As the market was unpredictable, our strategies were focused on risk minimization as well as loss minimization by diversifying our portfolio & by observing other measurement tools like Sharpe ratios, Jensen alpha, correlations & others. In addition our portfolio management was not intensified into these formulas as we also considered some of our predictions about this volatile market & companies. 2. Objective: The main objective of our project is to build up strong investment strategies to cope up with this volatile market with maximizing after tax wealth. To do this we realized that diversifying our portfolio would be the best strategy & that’s why we tried to invest in more than ten industries so that downturn in one sector can be offset by the rise in another sectors stock return. Therefore, while determining our investment mix, we allocated our asset among investments in various industries. Thus, in our asset allocation process, we included investments from industries such as bank,......
