5.2. Public capital markets. The demand for investment banking services

Week 5 of the Course is devoted to public investments and investment banking. We consider the major activities of investment banks – underwriting, trading, consulting, and financial innovation. We study the details of underwriting and the core reasons for underpricing as an important phenomenon that determines the observed behavior of market participants in the process of financing. We also discuss the mechanism of market bubbles and crises as well as the role of investment banks and other financial institutions in the crisis development. That sets the background for the idea of regulation of investment banks.
