Course Overview

The core of the investment banking role is raising money for the client. This is primarily done in two ways: by issuing equity and debt of the company. A company wanting to issue bonds hires an investment bank not only to help in structuring the bonds but also to tap the potential investors through their vast network. It works the same way for raising capital by selling equity, or stock. Investment bankers serve as the primary go-to people when a company holds an Initial Public Offer (IPO) to sell stock to the public. The role of investment bankers includes the determination of IPO price as well.

Due to COVID-19, Government has advised against all kinds of public gathering till further notice. For us, safety of our learners is important and hence the programme will be delivered over Direct-to-Device platform i.e. (D2D) where you can access online interactive lectures which will get delivered on your desktop/laptop/mobile.
