I don't understand the IB processIB
I am an analyst at a boutique. I had no really formal training before I started but I do come from a finance major. I have a lot of questions about the IB process that I am afraid to ask at this point.
Things such as, what does it mean to be engaged/mandated? What is the process from pitch to closed deal? what is a CIM for? what is a management presentation and a lenders presentation?
I use these materials all the time but I dont understand exactly where they fall in the whole IB process.
Are there any materials that someone could send me so that I can finally understand wtf is going on. I feel like an idiot not knowing.
