Martin Lustgarten is an investment banker. While those in the financial industry may already understand that term, Martin is very interested in helping others understand what he does allowing them to decide if working with an investment banker is the right choice for them.
One of the things that Martin does is connect companies looking to raise capital with people who have funds. Usually, when a company is looking to raise funds, they contact an investment banker who evaluates the value and risks of the business and determines a fair market price so that the company can issue bonds. The investment banker then sells these bonds.
An investment banker also assists companies with mergers and acquisitions. When working with a company that is interested in merging with others, Martin will first confidentially contact those who might be interested in the merger to gauge their level of interest. Then, he works with companies to prepare the legal paperwork and to secure approval from company shareholders.
Another part of Martin’s job is to trade securities, either through their own accounts or by matching buyers and sellers who are interested in the security. An important aspect of this part of his job is to conduct equity research
