So you are going to college or university and want to pursue a profession that pays good money. Somewhere along the line you asked yourself what is investment banking? Quite simply, it is the side of banking that makes an investment in a company, rather than traditional commercial banking which deals with banking tellers, deposits, withdrawals and other everyday banking activities. This is not a job for people who are cuddly or who enjoy curly problem solving. It is the study of curved businesses and damp scenarios involving dangerous finances and deafening profits. If you are not going into the deep then you will be defeated. Investment banking has long been labeled as one of the most cut throat, competitive, jobs in the world. It has become so competitive due to the nature and size of the funds/accounts that one must deal with on a day to day basis. The profession requires an understanding of the defiant and a delicious appetite for delightful financial reports. You cannot be depressed and you must be determined to do the dirty work that disgusted the CEO. Accountants are disturbed by investment bankers because they spin numbers in a dizzy manner while their dry, dull and dusty calculators do the math. This is one of the reasons that investment banking flies so far under the radar. Everyone hears about accountants doing this or that, and many college students aspire to be a number crunching accountant with a decent salary. The cutthroat world of investment banking however yields far greater profits, and can be far more demanding. Eager young people will be elated to learn that many companies are embarrassed by their recent failures in the recession and will take anyone on board with empty pockets. The companies are encouraging and seek energetic and enthusiastic employees. The job requires an understanding of the markets and a keen eye for companies with solid portfolios and income steams. The banker will find businesses eager to expand and recommend an investment that correlates with the projected profits. It is, to some degree, business forecasting in that the banker behind all of this, is looking to guide the businesses on their investments. The bank may seek an interest return or company shares or a percentage of profits. This shares risk and reward. One of the most highly publicized and sought after (in terms of jobs) investment banks in the country is Goldman Sachs. Roam those halls and you will run into some of the most powerful people in the world.

The investment banking career can be awfully tough to break into and even harder to stay in. But at the end of the day investment banking is one of the most lucrative business on the planet.
