Today a merchant banker is who has the ability to merchandise that is, create or expand a need and fulfill capital requirements.

The dictionary meaning of merchant bank refers to an organization that underwrites corporate securities and advises such clients on issues like corporate mergers, etc. involved in the ownership of commercial ventures. This organization may be a bank, corporate body, firm or proprietary concern.
Merchant banking started with the management of public issues and loan syndication and has been slowly and gradually covering activities like project counseling, portfolio management, investment counseling and mergers and amalgamation of the corporate firms. Although, merchant banking organizations present a long list of services they contemplate to render to their clients but the main services so far being rendered by them are those as authorized by the SEBI.Definition The first authoritative definition for the term Merchant Banker has been given in the Rule 2 (e) of SEBI (Merchant Bankers) Rules, 1922. Accordingly, A Merchant Banker means any person who is engaged in the business of Issue Management either by making arrangements regarding selling, buying or subscribing to Securities as Manager, Consultant, Adviser of rendering Corporate Advisory Service in relation to such Issue Management.
Sec/5 (b) of the Banking Regulation Act, 1949 defines Banking as accepting, for the purpose of lending or investment of deposits of money from the public, repayable on demand or otherwise and withdraw able by cheque, draft, order or otherwise.
The Notification of the Ministry of Finance defines a merchant banker as, any person who is engaged in the business of issue management either by making arrangements regarding selling, buying or subscribing to the securities as manager, consult, adviser or rendering corporate advisory service in relation to such issue management.MeaningMerchant banking is an activity that includes corporate finance activites, such as advice in complex financing mergers and acquisition advice, and at times direct equity investment in corporation by banks.
Merchant banking implies investment management. Companies raise capital by issuing securities in the market. Merchant bankers act as intermediaries between the issuers of capital and the investors who purchased securities. Merchant banking is the financial intermediation that matches entities that need capital and those that have capital for investment. History of Merchant BankingOrigin of merchant banking
The origin of merchant banking can be traced back to the 13th century when the development of international trade and finance took place. The early merchant bankers were traders of commodities. These bankers also acted as bankers to the kings of European States and financed continental wars and coastal trades. The earlier merchant bankers used to lend their name to the lesser known traders by accepting bills through which they guaranteed that the holder of the bill would receive full value on the date of payment. Although merchant banking activity was ushered in two decades ago, it was only in 1992 after the formation of Securities and Exchange Board of India that it is defined and a set of rules and regulations in place. Hence the name merchant was used because of its roots in merchant trade.The Growth of merchant banking in India
In India prior to the enactment of Indian Companies Act, 1956,managing agents acted as issue houses for securities, evaluated project reports, planned capital structure and to some extent provided venture capital for new firms. Few share broking firms also functioned as merchant bankers.
Formal merchant activity in India was originated in 1969 with the merchant banking division setup by the Grind lays Bank, the largest foreign bank in the country. The main service offered at that time to the corporate enterprises by the merchant banks included the management of public issues and some aspects of financial consultancy. Following Grind lays Bank, Citibank set up its merchant banking division in 1970.The division took up the task of assisting new entrepreneurs and existing units in the evaluation of new projects and raising funds through borrowing and equity issues. Management consultancy services were also offered. Merchant bankers are permitted to carry on activities of primary dealers
