Philadelphia financier Jay Cooke established the first modern American investment bank during the Civil War era. However, private banks had been providing investment banking functions since the beginning of the 19th century and many of these evolved into investment banks in the post-bellum era. However, the evolution of firms into investment banks did not follow a single trajectory. For example, some currency brokers such as Prime, Ward & King and John E. Thayer and Brother moved from foreign exchange operations to become private banks, taking on some investment bank functions. Other investment banks evolved from mercantile firms such as Thomas Biddle and Co. and Alexander Brothers.

  • En investmentbank är en bank som förmedlar och ibland även emitterar finansiella tillgångar. Den ger vanligen även finansiell rådgivning och handlar för egen räkning. Genom sin tillgång till finansiella marknader hjälper investmentbanker sina kunder att erhålla kapital genom att exempelvis emittera aktier och obligationer. Kunderna kan vara större företag eller länder som behöver låna för att täcka budgetunderskott. Investmentbanker kan även introducera större och mindre företag på en aktiebörs samt organisera sammangåenden och förvärv.
