Investment Banker

A person who works for an investment bank, which is a financial institution that provides a variety of services for clients. Included among the services an investment banker may provide are underwriting, facilitating in transactions, assisting in mergers and acquisitions, and brokering. Typically, an investment banker's clients are institutional investors, but high net-worth individuals also hire them. The name can be misleading because investment bankers rarely provide retail banking services.
