Publicly Traded Investment Banks

U.S. Exchanges

List of Publicly Traded Investment Banks Listed on Major U.S. Exchanges

The companies on this list provide investing banking services. Investment banks perform a wide range of functions including:

  • Providing brokerage services for institutional clients
  • Assisting in mergers and acquisitions
  • Assisting in corporate reorganizations
  • Corporate defense activities
  • Raising capital through underwriting
  • Underwriting of public offerings
  • Spin-offs
  • Retail and Commercial banking services

While there are companies that exclusively or primarily engage in investing banking activities, it is also common for investing banking services to be a lesser area of focus in comparison to other activities in which the company is engaged. This occurs frequently with many of the broker-dealers who also engage in investing banking.
