The COVID-19 epidemic had a significant effect in US on all aspects of the investment banking industry, including bank performance, covered clients, and transaction activity. With workers being relocated to a work-from-home environment, the operation of financial institutions' investment banking (IB) divisions has also been seriously affected, creating enormous operational, cultural, and business issues. Clients of the IBs have been negatively impacted by the economy. Corporate clients needed access to credit lines to increase cash on hand and cut down on capital expenditure because they were facing major revenue and cost issues. Massive increases in redemptions and declining asset values have also had an impact on institutional investors. To counteract the decline in economic activity and to maintain market confidence, national governments have implemented fiscal and monetary stimulus.

The rise of Decentralized Finance

Decentralized Finance, or Defi, is currently the talk of the financial services sector. Defi is a system that enables secure, programmable, real-time transactions between holders of digital assets using blockchain and related technology. Defi is frequently referred to as "bankless finance" because there is no single organization in charge of regulating these transactions. Although this suggests more danger, it also suggests more control and reduced processing costs for participants.

Goldman Sachs is one of the biggest banks in the world, and many others are starting to embrace bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Others in the investment banking sector are making predictions regarding the impact of blockchain on the sector. One thing is certain, though: DeFi is still in its initial phases, so keeping up with the most recent advancements in this field is essential. DeFi has a significant impact on the financial services industry.

The usage of decentralized finance, or Defi, was most prevalent in nations like the United States and China that exchanged or transferred significant quantities of bitcoins. Contrary to a global country ranking on cryptocurrency ownership, consumers from developing countries were significantly more likely to own bitcoin than customers from industrialized nations. Defi is designed to either gain access to cryptocurrencies or move them around. Traders and institutional investors are mostly interested in the cryptocurrencies of the United States, China, the United Kingdom, and India.
