Investment & Asset Management OVERVIEW


     The investment industry is comprised of a wide variety of sectors and service providers.
     At the top of the list are the giant asset managers, like BlackRock, a firm managing $4 trillion in investment assets, an amount so immense that it is roughly equal to the gross national products of Russia and India combined.
     Also at the top of the industry are the biggest exchanges, where billions of shares trade hands yearly, along with the major investment banks, those firms that raise money for corporate clients by selling their stocks and bonds to the public.
     Investment banks also deal in private equity investments and asset management, and they earn immense fees by brokering mergers and acquisitions.
    Then there are the big firms that provide stock brokerage services.
     Some of them, like Merrill Lynch, are also investment banks.
     Others, like Charles Schwab, are primarily stock brokers that deal with millions of individual customers.
    However, the lines have blurred between sectors in recent years.
     It is common for one firm to operate in multiple segments of the investment industry at once:  commercial banking, investment banking, asset management, insurance, mortgages, financial advisory, venture capital, mergers and acquisitions and more.
    2016 was a modest year in terms of companies going public for the first time, with about 100 companies raising an estimated $16 billion in initial public offerings of stock (IPOs) on U.S.
