Investment Banking Services Price Index, 2017
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.
