NICHE DEALS PANEL

Dean Anason, Assistant Managing Editor, AMERICAN BANKER
Allen G. Laufenberg, CFA, Managing Director, Investment Banking, STIFEL NICOLAUS WEISEL
Barry N. Winslow, Vice Chairman, Corporate Development, TCF FINANCIAL CORPORATION

Used-card lenders, insurance agencies, currency exchangers, trust services providers and equipment leasing firms are the new targets of bank M&A. Buyers are turning to niche deals in the quest for revenue growth at a time when sellers of traditional banks are still demanding high prices, failed-bank transactions have ebbed and the appeal of branch acquisitions is iffy. Bankers on this panel talk about why they have done niche deals, why they chose what they chose and what expertise they needed to do them.
