Books on investment banking are few and far between and mostly out of date. Usually they are very academic or written by lawyers rather than by someone who understands the business. This one, written by a former practitioner, gives students of investment banking just the insights they need into the nexus of investment banking, private equity and hedge funds. --Brian Scott-Quinn, Chair in Investment Banking, ICMA Centre, Henley Business School, University of Reading
Investment banking is in permanent change. This new book on investment banking describes the most recent trends that have taken place in the industry, in particular the interaction between investment banking and the hedge funds and private equity businesses. This is an exhaustive and up-to-date guide to the major banking activities. The different themes covered in the book are illustrated by fascinating real life cases. The book by David Stowell will become the new reference on investment banking. --Pierre Hillion, INSEAD
A clearly written account of several popular segments of the global financial services industry. Students who wish to enhance their understanding of the banking system would benefit from reading this book. --Sanjay Gupta, Swiss Finance Academy
From the Back Cover
The dynamic environment of investment banks, hedge funds, and private equity firms comes to life in David Stowell's introduction to the ways they challenge and sustain each other. Capturing their reshaped business plans in the wake of the 2007-9 global meltdown, his book reveals their key functions, compensation systems, unique roles in wealth creation and risk management, and epic battles for investor funds and corporate influence. Its combination of perspectives drawn from his industry and academic backgrounds delivers insights that illuminate the post-2009 reinvention and acclimation processes. Through a broad view of the ways these financial institutions affect corporations, governments, and individuals, Professor Stowell shows us how and why they will continue to project their power and influence.
More About the Author
Prior to joining Northwestern in 2005, he was a managing director at JP Morgan in Chicago with responsibility for mid-west investment banking. In addition, he worked in investment banking at UBS as managing director and co-head of U.S. equity capital markets, and at Goldman Sachs, where he managed an equity derivatives business and worked in corporate finance and M&A in New York and Tokyo. He was also a managing director at O'Connor Partners, a large hedge fund based in Chicago.
Stowell left Goldman Sachs in 1993 to work for O'Connor Partners, where he developed new hedge fund products which were directed to corporations interested in fund raising and risk management. O'Connor Partners was subsequently sold to UBS, where he focused on equity capital markets and equity derivatives activities before finishing his investment banking career at JP Morgan.
He graduated from Utah State University with a BA in Economics and from Columbia University's Graduate School of Business with an MBA in Finance. In addition to his current teaching responsibilities, he manages Paradigm Partners, a boutique investment bank that provides M&A and capital raising services and general advice on investment banking, hedge fund and private equity activities to selected clients.

If you don't have to do the end of chapter quizzes then you'll love it. If you have to do the quizzes for a class, plead with your professor to not use the stupid questions.
I agree with the reviewer who was very suspisious about all the 5 star ratings.
First search a few pages in this book and see if you find a reason to buy this book.
What is more, the glowing reviews of this book look phony. They appear to be written by people who have never read the book. I do not believe they are real readers.
