Deloitte is a global leader in providing professional services to clients across various industries, including financial services. One of the key offerings of Deloitte is investment banking, which helps clients achieve their strategic and financial goals through mergers and acquisitions (M&A), capital raising, restructuring, and valuation services.
The Challenges and Opportunities of the Investment Banking Industry
The investment banking industry is undergoing a significant transformation due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the evolving financial regulations, the market democratization, the increased client sophistication, the shift to remote working arrangements, and the rapid technology advances. These forces are creating challenges and opportunities for investment banks to adapt their business models and operational platforms to keep up with the changing landscape and deliver the bank of the future.
According to a report by Deloitte, the investment banking industry will likely transition from a full-scale service model to a bifurcation of two broker archetypes: “client capturers” that specialize in front-office functions and “flow players” that focus primarily on middle- and back-office functions. These archetypes will likely operate within an interconnected, increasingly global, and potentially virtual ecosystem that includes partner collaborations that provide various back-office functions.
The report also suggests that investment banks will need to determine which role they want and are able to play within the ecosystem, depending on their internal and external factors. They will also need to redesign their service delivery around a connected flow model, moving capacity and processes to the ecosystem of market providers, and optimize the use of financial technology, data, and analytics to generate differentiated insight and added value.
