Overview

The dynamic environment of investment banks, hedge funds, and private equity firms comes to life in David Stowell’s introduction to the ways they challenge and sustain each other. Capturing their reshaped business plans in the wake of the 2007-2009 global meltdown, his book reveals their key functions, compensation systems, unique roles in wealth creation and risk management, and epic battles for investor funds and corporate influence. Its combination of perspectives—drawn from his industry and academic backgrounds—delivers insights that illuminate the post-2009 reinvention and acclimation processes. Through a broad view of the ways these financial institutions affect corporations, governments, and individuals, Professor Stowell shows us how and why they will continue to project their power and influence.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Books on investment banking are few and far between and mostly out of date. Usually they are very academic or written by lawyers rather than by someone who understands the business. This one, written by a former practitioner, gives students of investment banking just the insights they need into the nexus of investment banking, private equity and hedge funds. --Brian Scott-Quinn,Chair in Investment Banking, ICMA Centre,Henley Business School, University of Reading

Investment banking is in permanent change. This new book on investment banking describes the most recent trends that have taken place in the industry, in particular the interaction between investment banking and the hedge funds and private equity businesses. This is an exhaustive and up-to-date guide to the major banking activities. The different themes covered in the book are illustrated by fascinating real life cases. The book by David Stowell will become the new reference on investment banking. --Pierre Hillion, INSEAD

A clearly written account of several popular segments of the global financial services industry. Students who wish to enhance their understanding of the banking system would benefit from reading this book. --Sanjay Gupta,Swiss Finance Academy
