With the continuous improvement and innovation of the business model of commercial banks, investment banking plays an increasingly important role in the business system of commercial banks in recent years. Compared with the western developed capitalist countries, the investment banking of Chinese commercial banks developed rapidly with strong vitality, though started late. However, with the continuous development of Chinese capital market and the changes in the economic environment at home and abroad in recent years, all kinds of problems still emerged though the investment banking of Chinese commercial banks is in a stage of sound development. The text analyses the problems of investment banking of Chinese commercial banks and gives corresponding suggestions by comparing the development and current situation of investment banking at home and abroad and combining the Chinese social-economic environment in recent years.
