    They are technically called Investment Banks. They basically help people earn more money through investments, whereas regular banks just pay interest.

    They are also institutional lenders in that they typically only deal with non-people clients (corporations, trusts, funds, etc.). Really rich people often are catered to as "Private Wealth Mgmt", or through wealth protection as in trusts or something like that.

    I sense there is another layer of definition you are looking for, but without more info, this is it.

    Good luck!
