  • The financing cycle of firms: venture capital and private equity
  • Equity underwriting: the mechanics of bringing an issue to market, the role of research
  • Debt securities: a comparison of loans, the private placement market, and corporate bonds; the role of the Rule 144A private placement market
  • The role of investment banks in mergers and acquisitions
