Merchant Banking refers to negotiated private equity investment by financial institutions in the unregistered securities of either privately or publicly held companies. A bank that offers these services is called a merchant bank. Both commercial and investment banks may engage in merchant banking activities. The original purpose of merchant banks was to facilitate and/or finance production and trade of commodities and hence the name "merchant"

An Investment bank is a financial institution that helps individuals, corporations etc. in raising capital by underwriting and/or acting as the clients agent in issuance of securities (Shares, bonds etc.). An investment bank may also assist companies that are involved in Mergers and Acquisitions and provides services like trading stocks & derivatives, fixed income instruments, foreign exchange, commodities etc.

Wholesale banking is the business transactions that go on between banks. Retail banking has to do with direct customers of the bank.


Retail banking ensues financial transactions where the bank loans money on credit also known as lines of credit in which companies repay based on terms set by the lender. With retail banking, the bank assumes most or all of the risk. Investment banking can either be the sale of stock, preferred stock, bonds, debentures and so on. Investment banking requires the underwriting of financial instruments which reasonably assures investors that the company is solvent and able to repay the funds or that the stock should rise in value in the long run after the funds are raised. Regardless, with investment banking, investors assume most of or all the the risk.


banking you do in person at the branch and electronic banking is done via internet, mobile banking platforms.


The world of banking and finance is one of many intricacies. Many types of financial institutions exist, including commercial banking and merchant banking. The difference between commercial banking and merchant banking lies mainly in the services they provide, and to whom they are provided. Commercial banking is generally accessible to anyone for basic banking needs, whereas merchant banks serve mainly large companies and very wealthy individuals. Commercial banks are what people typically refer to as "banks." A commercial bank can provide loans to individuals and small businesses. It raises funds by collecting deposits from these same groups of people, as well as from interest charged on loans. It also purchases bonds from governments and corporate entities. The banks described above are the most common definition of commercial banks. Commercial banking is also sometimes defined as the provision of banking services such as checking and loans to large businesses, as distinguished from individual citizens. In this case, banking provided to individuals is referred to as retail banking to differentiate it from the second definition of commercial banking. Commercial banking and merchant banking both involve the provision of financial services and advice. Merchant banking, however, often focuses on investing a depositor's assets in a finance portfolio and managing these investments. Merchant banks are commonly called investment banks in the United States. Apart from investing and managing the assets of wealthy clients, merchant banks also offer counsel and advice to large corporations. This advice is particularly useful when a corporation is considering getting involved in a merger with, or acquisition of, another corporation. Both commercial banking and merchant banking have roots that go back hundreds of years, if not more. Merchant banks were actually the original banks, and were invented in the Middle Ages by Italian grain merchants. These merchants, as well as Jewish traders fleeing persecution in Spain, used merchant banking to finance long trading journeys as well as the production of grain. The use of commercial banks by the average citizen is a relatively new phenomenon, historically speaking, but moneylenders have engaged in basic banking practices since the time of ancient Roman Empire. Primitive banking, though, mainly consisted of changing foreign currency to that of the Empire, rather than investment as we see today. Today's commercial banks are so common that more people work in the commercial banking sector than in any other part of the financial services industry.

what is the diffrence between a merchant and an artisans


Merchant banks and investment banks, in their purest forms, are different kinds of financial institutions that perform different services. In practice, the fine lines that separate the functions of merchant banks and investment banks tend to blur. Traditional merchant banks often expand into the field of securities underwriting, while many investment banks participate in trade financing activities. In theory, investment banks and merchant banks perform different functions. Pure investment banks raise funds for businesses and some governments by registering and issuing debt or equity and selling it on a market. Traditionally, investment banks only participated in underwriting and selling securities in large blocks. Investment banks facilitate mergers and acquisitions through share sales and provide research and financial consulting to companies. Traditionally, investment banks did not deal with the general public. Traditional merchant banks primarily perform international financing activities such as foreign corporate investing, foreign real estate investment, trade finance and international transaction facilitation. Some of the activities that a pure merchant bank is involved in may include issuing letters of credit, transferring funds internationally, trade consulting and co-investment in projects involving trade of one form or another. The current offerings of investment banks and merchant banks varies by the institution offering the services, but there are a few characteristics that most companies that offer both investment and merchant banking share. As a general rule, investment banks focus on initial public offerings (IPOs) and large public and private share offerings. Merchant banks tend to operate on small-scale companies and offer creative equity financing, bridge financing, mezzanine financing and a number of corporate credit products. While investment banks tend to focus on larger companies, merchant banks offer their services to companies that are too big for venture capital firms to serve properly, but are still too small to make a compelling public share offering on a large exchange. In order to bridge the gap between venture capital and a public offering, larger merchant banks tend to privately place equity with other financial institutions, often taking on large portions of ownership in companies that are believed to have strong growth potential. Merchant banks still offer trade financing products to their clients. Investment banks rarely offer trade financing because most investment banking clients have already outgrown the need for trade financing and the various credit products linked to it


An investment you expect a return, with the other, you don't.


the two words for same think, also web banking, net banking, etc.


online banking and internet banking is the same thing, to go online you need internet.


There is a difference between international banking and domestic banking. International banking is banking among different countries. Domestic banking is banking among one country.


there is no difference, they're the same thing. but craft guilds are a type of merchant guild. other than that, there is no difference, really


the difference between home banking and on line banking is the way how to deposit and withdraw your money savings.home banking is you go personally to the bank company and deposit there . while on line banking is you just go to the electronic machine using w/ your card or via mobile phone .
