29 Investment banking in the US The modern concept of “Investment Bank” was created by the Glass-Steagall act (Banking Act of 1933). Following the 1929 stock market crash, large banks went bankrupt. Glass-Steagall separated commercial banks, investment banks, and insurance companies. In 1999 the Glass-Steagall Act was waived (Graham-Leach- Bliley Act). 29

30 Investment banking in the UK In the past, separation between: 1.Brokers: Rout the orders of customers to the stock exchange, give advices on investments. They cannot take positions in the stocks that act as brokers for. 2.Jobbers: Market makers that could trade only with the brokers, not with the general public. 3.Merchant banks: Commercial banks that offer corporate finance services (M&A advisory, underwriting etc.). Did not own the brokers. In 1986: Big bang: 1.Abolition of fixed commission to increase competition 2.Dual capacity: Jobbers, brokers and merchant banks can integrate 30

31 1990s: The failure of UK investment banks Problems –The US had deregulated fees in 1975 –Business became much more complex, more difficult to manage –Lack of managerial experience –Clash of cultures brokers/jobbers/merchant banks Markets became volatile after the 1987 crash Results became volatile and UK banks made substantial losses 1995 saw many UK banks fail amid losses 31

32 Reasons for US success since the 1990s Large financial and management resources, meaning that they were less exposed Huge profits in the US market allowed cross- subsidisation in Europe Economies of scale for underwriting activities 32
