07:33 EDTGSBig banks may target fee-generating firms for acquisitions, WSJ says
Large U.S. banks may begin targeting fee-generating businesses as possible takeover targets, the Wall Street Journal reports. Big banks may start looking at businesses that don’t require too much capital for acquisitions, such as advisory businesses, payment processing, treasury services, and financial tech, the report says. Even though heightened capital and liquidity requirements make many types of acquisitions “unappealing” to big banks, the idea of banks even as big as JP Morgan (JPM) pursuing a multi-billion dollar deal is “no longer out of the realm of possibility,” the report says. Publicly traded companies in the space include Bank of America (BAC), Citi (C), Goldman Sachs (GS), Morgan Stanley (MS), U.S. Bancorp (USB) and Wells Fargo (WFC). Reference Link
