Career opportunities in finance are highly productive, inspiring, and profit-making, but also aggressive, and challenging. Investment firms include numerous roles amongst which Investment Banking is one of the highest potential and most sought after.

Investment bankers facilitate transactions either between two firms or between the firm and the market. To take up investment banking, you need to possess the technical skills and intense knowledge of the financial markets, whereas to move forward in this field, you need something else – and that is your personal ability!

There are a few key abilities which are a must to possess to get into an investment banking career. For sure, you won’t possess them all immediately instead will start to develop them as soon as you start your internship. However, there has to be a certain zeal to acquire these skills if you don’t have it, or else have to strive to get into the world of investment banking.

The skills that an investment banker requires to outline and areas of study that may assist in the acquisition of the proficiency are categorized below.

Analytical Skills
Do you fare well in situations where the pressure is on to quickly understand the new information or a new concept so that you can apply it in your work? Recruiters test this sort of skills, which is considered as “Analytical Skills”.

Investment bankers need to demonstrate thorough research of their business activities or investment plans to stringent clients. Analytical expertise requires good computing and quantitative abilities to present their business plans with risk-return transactions, and restore all the important information when required.

This isn’t really about the intellectual, or your bookish grades instead demonstrating the zeal to understand and apply complex chunks of information. In investment banking, intellectual curiosity and ability is related to absorbing new data, managing a project or meeting a new client.

Presentation and Communication Skills
One of the few illusions circling investment banking jobs is that you have to be great at numbers. The reality? The greatest challenge to work in the banking world is the ability to motivate and convince. Every task will revolve around communicating between your team and clients. No matter if you are an analyst or a managing director, communication skills will go a long way in keeping your clients happy.

Management Abilities
Management and leadership abilities to manage the business on their own is a major requirement of an investment banking job. Leadership is the practice of certain skills, qualities and knowledge to ensure an outstanding performance and the best results are achieved from people.

In the junior level position, candidates need to manage things on their own, build teams, look for assistance from several internal divisions, and build partnerships with external vendors. Investment bankers may start as junior analysts, but candidates are valued on their long-term potential.

Entrepreneurial Skills
In investment banking, the ability to be creative and innovative is a highly valued skill. Determining business opportunities in recent and unique areas is one of the vital requirements of the job. The top bankers can approach a task or provide a solution in a way that may be new, pioneering an avenue for products and services. There is a substantial characteristic that forces individuals to approach a situation from a different angle. Absence of entrepreneurial skills will restraint such business identifying potential.

Networking Skills
