NEW YORK, Aug. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite fee growth from the Investment Banking and Securities Dealing industry's traditional underwriting and advisory services, both cyclical and structural influences on trading activity have ultimately harmed revenue for operators in recent years. Cyclical trends such as low long-term interest rates have reduced trading activity, while regulatory changes spurred by the 2008 subprime mortgage crisis have put new restrictions on the financial services industry firms may offer. While the industry's smaller players have evolved to focus on M&A services, the industry's largest firms have continued to struggle, and overall industry revenue has declined steadily since 2010. Nevertheless, increased interest rate volatility and general macroeconomic improvements in the next five years will enable the industry to return to growth.
This industry is composed of firms and individuals that provide a range of securities services, including investment banking and broker-dealer trading services. They also offer banking and wealth management services and engage in proprietary trading (trading their own capital for a profit) to varying degrees. Investment banking services include securities underwriting and corporate financial services while trading services include market making and broker-dealer services.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
