Equity Capital Markets Department
The department of an investment bank that deals with traders who work on exchange floors. Equity capital markets departments exist to prevent traders from dealing with the ordinary investment banking divisions, which may accidentally breach confidential information. This helps promote stability in the market, protects the bank's deals with clients and prevents it from running afoul of insider trading laws.
