Fleet Boston: back to basics

Fleet wants to direct more of its resources into its consumer and wholesale banking operations. It's a good idea - financial services firms need to focus on their core competencies to maximize profitability in a soft economy.

Merrill Lynch: taking the rap for its peers

Mr Spitzer wants Merrill to pay $100 million and admit it issued biased stock notes. But Merrill is unlikely to settle: an admission of guilt would draw legal action from its clients, and there's little evidence it behaved worse than its peers.

ABN Amro looks set to outsource all IT services for its Wholesale Clients unit to EDS. The deal, worth at least $1.46 billion, will be one of the largest ever IT outsourcing deals in the banking industry.

Credit Suisse: boardroom shuffling isn't enough

Lukas Muehlemann's departure from his twin roles at Credit Suisse was no surprise, given the company's plummeting share price and US probes into the allocation of hot stock offerings. But new management alone will not solve the bank's problems. The new joint CEOs - inside players John Mack and Oswald Gruebel - now need a new strategy.
