Merchant banking combines banking services and consulting expertise to help manage businesses effectively. Consultants offer guidance in finance, legal matters, and marketing.

Basically, they are experts who assist businesses in raising capital and managing their financial affairs.

Merchant banking services operate through several functions, some of which are outlined below:
