Verbal Offer Deadline - No Written Offer

I've received a verbal offer from a MM bank for a position within equity research. The hiring manager requested I make a decision by the end of the week, and I have not received a written offer. Is it appropriate to ask to see the written copy ahead of time to look over? I'm not sure what is the customary practice and wanted to make sure before tripping over at the finish line.
