Do investment bankers that structure investments actually work in the buying and selling of them?
If an investment banker underwrote the securities for an acquisition, would he actually work in the buying and selling of them? Or would he pass them off to the sales and trading division?
Question answered by muncie birder
When an investment banker underwrites an offering, it both buys and sells them. That really is what underwriting is all about. It offers the company x amount and then sells them for y amount.
Can a Investment banker start a holdings company?

Question answered by exactduke
And the investment bank (s/he is working for) is going to be perfectly happy with their employee competing against them?? I DON'T THINK SO.
Might even be a conflict of interest.
What is a good investment plan for funding a retirement?
Develop an investment plan with the ultimate goal of funding your retirement based on what you have learned so far.
Like how you would integrate estate planning into the investment plan you selected?
Question answered by The Technomancer
Vending machines or bouillon are the way to go for an investment that you don't have to actively monitor. The stock market right now is a little too volatile, doubly so for real estate.
To get started with vending machines, check out http://www.vendingrules.com, or if investing in silver/platinum/etc. is a little more your style, http://www.buybullionnow.com/ is a good place to start.

How much does an investment club manager earn?
I am planning to start an investment club. I would like to know how much an investment club manager earns. What tasks do the investment club manager do in order to justify their income? Are their any salary websites or reading materials who show what investment club managers do and what they earn.
Thanks for your answers in advance.
Question answered by ag318pun
The same percentage amount as everyone else.
Members of the club participate by researching
a company for a possible investment choice.
Then by a majority of the club members a decision
is made to include that company or turn it down.
The club investors have shares in the clubs portfolio
of stocks and bonds. It takes a strong manager
to avoid problems in the club.
What's the difference between return on investment and internal rate of return?
Return on investment (ROI) and internal rate of return (IRR) is kind of confusing... What is the difference between the two?
Question answered by gupta0209
In finance, rate of return (ROR), also known as return on investment (ROI), rate of profit or sometimes just return, is the ratio of money gained or lost (realized or unrealized) on an investment relative to the amount of money invested. The amount of money gained or lost may be referred to as interest, profit/loss, gain/loss, or net income/loss. The money invested may be referred to as the asset, capital, principal, or the cost basis of the investment. ROI is usually expressed as a percentage rather than a fraction.
ROI does not indicate how long an investment is held. However, ROI is most often stated as an annual or annualized rate of return, and it is most often stated for a calendar or fiscal year. In this article, "ROI" indicates an annual or annualized rate of return, unless otherwise noted.
ROI is used to compare returns on investments where the money gained or lost — or the money invested — are not easily compared using monetary values. For instance, a $1,000 investment that earns $50 in interest generates more cash than a $100 investment that earns $20 in interest, but the $100 investment earns a higher return on investment.
$50/$1,000 = 5% ROI
$20/$100 = 20% ROI
The internal rate of return (IRR) is a capital budgeting metric used by firms to decide whether they should make investments. It is an indicator of the efficiency or quality of an investment, as opposed to net present value (NPV), which indicates value or magnitude.
The IRR is the annualized effective compounded return rate which can be earned on the invested capital, i.e., the yield on the investment. Put another way, the internal rate of return for an investment is the discount rate that makes the net present value of the investment's income stream total to zero.
A project is a good investment proposition if its IRR is greater than the rate of return that could be earned by alternate investments of equal risk (investing in other projects, buying bonds, even putting the money in a bank account). Thus, the IRR should be compared to any alternate costs of capital including an appropriate risk premium.
In general, if the IRR is greater than the project's cost of capital, or hurdle rate, the project will add value for the company.
In the context of savings and loans the IRR is also called effective interest rate
What is the best investment opportunity with a high interest rate?
I am looking for an investment option that yields high interest and that is not required to be a long term commitment. I would like to start out investing $50 a month / 600 a year.
Question answered by muncie birder
I believe you may have a problem. Frankly, I do not know of any meeting those criteria.
Best investment results are supplied by investments in the 5 to 10 year time frame and even further out 20 and 30 years. Any investment under 5 years will be an iffy proposition except for a savings account.
If you want to consider 10 years as being not a long term commitment, I can recommend American Funds. You can start with $250 and add $50 a month. They do have a very good track record. One thing you need to know about American Funds. They do charge a 5.75% load. They do not charge the load on reinvestments of dividends however. Most, if not all, of the no load funds have a much higher minimum investment of about $2000.
What does an investment banker do and what kind of hours does the job require?
I'm interested in becoming an investment banker. I know the basics of the career, but I wanted to know what kind of hours and stress it involves. Is it a good field to go into right now with the economy? Also, any pros and cons that you can think of. Thanks!
Question answered by Toni
It is a fast paced, long hours job, but rewarding. It can be stressful, however it is a good field to go into regardless of the economy. Pros are good money, interesting job, good working conditions and in most cases good bonus/rewards. Cons: Can be high stress and long hours. You will need to study and research the industry if you are really serious. You will also probably have to settle for a job in Investment Banking that might not be what you want right away, but you can work your way up.
What is the best investment for your money?
What is the best short term investment for one's money with the highest return, with the lowest amount of risk? I'm invested in CD's and they give a good interest rate and very skeptical of the stock market yoyo and not interested in the shaky housing market. But my question still remains and want to know what do you think would be the best investment, also thinking about foreign securities, but what do you think is a good investment and also for retirement long term too?
Question answered by muncie birder
At the moment, t-bills. Better than cds. No state and local taxes.
Long term--a variety of index funds and mutual funds with different investment objectives. Examples: PENNX--small cap stocks, SPY--large cap stocks, SWZ--Swiss stocks, TDF--Chinese stocks, IJH--mid cap stocks.
What is the best investment option at the moment in India?
What woudl you consider as good investment option in current market.
Possibly looking at the stock market and mutual fund performance it could be the FIPs, but then you get saddled with the tax obligation.
