Where Boutique Bankers Still Struggle on the New Wall Street

Thu, 03/06/2014 - 16:30

The planned IPO of 7-year-old investment bank Moelis & Co. is a signal of just how far boutique bankers have yet to come — that, in spite of all their hopes in the immediate aftermath of the financial crisis, they’re still stuck in their niches while the largest institutions are more dominant than ever.

Yet instead of rivaling Goldman Sachs, Moelis is turning to the banking giant (and to its arch-rival, Morgan Stanley) to underwrite its own just-announced public offering. Many boutique bankers expected that, whether as a result of increased regulation or simply in response to changing industry fundamentals, banks would reshape themselves.
