Investment Banking Services Price Index, 2017

Released: 2018-04-24

Investment Banking Services Price Index

2017

11.9% increase

(annual change)

The Investment Banking Services Price Index (IBSPI) increased by 11.9% in 2017, following a 2.8% decrease in 2016.

The increase in 2017 was attributable to higher prices for services related to facilitating the issuance of corporate ownership securities. Specifically, services related to underwriting non-resource sector corporate ownership securities, the most heavily weighted component of the index in 2017, were the main contributor to the increase in the index.
