The article presents information on the status of development of healthcare bankers and banking institution. Credit Suisse First Boston has had a rough go in healthcare investment banking over the past three years, tumbling in both the equity underwriting and mergers-and acquisition league tables as a clutch of top bankers have jumped ship. The firm is also under pressure because of its decline in two key U.S. healthcare league tables. In equity and equity-linked underwriting, CSFB three years ago was a solid number two, underwriting 15 deals for a total of nearly $3.9 billion in proceeds, according to Thomson Financial. The firm is targeting Asian countries such as Japan, where it has not done much business to date, as possible growth areas.
