Understanding Investment Banking

Investment banking differs markedly from retail banking. Bank branches where you deposit paychecks, checks and cash are part of the retail banking world. Retail banks also known as commercial banks loan money for mortgages and may also offers credit cards to consumers. Commercial banks also offer certificates of deposits, savings accounts and checking accounts. The main way that retail banks function is they take money from an individual or business and then loan a portion of that money to someone else in the form of loans or credit. The retail bank makes money off of interest charged to people who have taken loans or use credit.

Investment banks play a very different role in the economy. To start, most investment banks do not have branches that will accept deposits of cash or checks like commercial banks do. You won’t find certificates of deposit or savings account at investment banks either. Investment banks instead invest money into stocks, commodities such as corn, oil, precious metals and cotton. They buy and sell stocks, bonds and commodities and try to make a profit off these items. Investment banks are actively involved in trading goods and financial derivatives. Commercial banks typically do not do this.

Another important job that investment banks do, is raising money for companies by determining the value of company stock, and then actually trying to sell the stocks on the markets. Investment banks often charge a fee for this service or they are paid on a commission basis for every share of stock sold. Helping companies acquire and merge with other firms is another job that investment banks do.

Madison Street Capital’s Extraordinary Leader Honored


Since its inception, Madison Street Capital has been the investment banking firm that stands by its clients to ensure they reach their goals within the world-wide marketplace. This firm’s actions have been exceptionally led by its Chief Operating Office and co-founder Anthony Marsala whose business duties have focused on handling mergers and acquisitions (M&A), corporate finance and business assessment. His contributions have taken him to supervising and directing Madison Street Capital’s business needs in Asia, Africa and Europe. In an article recently published in the Chicago Tribune we learned that Marsala was honored for his unique leadership abilities by The National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (NACVA) and the Consultants’ Training Institute (CTI).

NACVA developed a program which annually recognizes individuals who have accomplished triumphant endeavors in the world of business such as in M&A and business valuation. Known as its 40 Under Forty program, this prestigious acknowledgement chooses one recipient who has accomplished astonishing advances in business and respected by peers. These highly regarded individuals were selected by the executive staff representing CTI and NACVA, organizations which were founded on superiority and an essence of originality within the financial and accounting professionals.

Both CTI and NACVA had a difficult time choosing its 2015 recipient among all of the triumphant candidates. The nominees, who were comprised of more than 100, had all accomplished some amazing advances in various fields which include M&A. However for more than 13 years Madison Street Capital’s own Anthony Marsala had managed to continuously study and perform many transactional and valuation activities in many industry sectors.

Graduating from Chicago’s Loyola University, Marsala graduated with a focus on Finance and Information Systems. He also found time to enroll at the University of Oxford’s Said Business School where he earned a Masters Diploma with an emphasis on Strategy. Marsala is a member of the international organization known as the American Society of Appraisers (ASA) and the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (NACVA).
