Investment Bank

Our Investment Bank provides financial advisory, capital raising, financing and risk management services to corporations, governments and financial institutions worldwide.

We make it possible to move capital between those who need it - for example, to expand a company or build new infrastructure - and those who would like a return on investment. This contributes to global economic growth, helping millions of people to achieve their ambitions.

What we do

Our Investment Bank is made up of four key business lines: banking, markets, client capital management and research. We work in demanding and dynamic markets, and the strength of our team is an asset, setting us apart from our competitors.

Our strategy focuses on origination verticals, the businesses which involve collaboration between primary and secondary markets: banking, equities, and credit. We complement those businesses with a strong and focused macro business.

We have offices in over 30 countries across the world and advised on 4 of the top 10 global mergers and acquisition in 2014. We believe that strong, sustainable returns can only come from a business with firm values. We host 22 diversity networks with a total of 8,800 members. 

Our business areas


We give strategic advice on mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance and strategic risk management, helping our clients plan for the long term.


We offer sales, trading, risk management and associated services across the full range of asset classes including credit, equities liquid markets, macro products, and structured and financing products.


We provide multi-asset class and macro-economic research, coming up with practical ideas to help our clients make informed investment decisions.
