On April 6, 1998, the creation of Citigroup through the combination of
Citicorp and Travelers Inc. was announced to the general applause of
analysts and financial pundits. The “merger of equals” created the world’s
largest financial services firm—largest in market value, product range,

school? Has she worked for good companies? What functional knowledge does
he have? It’s best if this information is prominent and comes immediately to
the eye. If they like what they see, then they’ll read through the entire resume.
This approach is fairly typical of the way an investment banking team...
What is investment banking? Is it investing? Is it banking? Really, it is neither. Investment banking, or I-banking, as it is often called, is the term used to describe the business of raising capital for companies and advising them on financing and merger alternatives. Capital essentially means money. Companies need cash in order to grow and expand their businesses; investment banks sell securities to public investors in order to raise this cash.
