    I know I want to do my EPQ on banking, and in particular investment banking. I've started by researching the main tasks of an investement bank (e.g. prop trading, m&a etc.), but I don't know what I want my finished piece to be about; there is no real direction atm. Wonder if anyone can help.

    Thanks

    Perhaps highlight the weaknesses in banking in causing certain economic disasters such as the Wall Street Crash or the 2008 recession and comment on what could've been done then and in the future to prevent further outbreaks?

    Doesn't necessarily have to be on a question - it could be an essay about investment banking in general but of course it must be narrowed towards a particular aspect, and this is what i'm struggling with

    Wouldn't it be easier to get 5000 words on investment banking on general
