The article focuses on reforms undertaken at investment advisor Bear Stearns Cos. Inc. for efficient operations. Bear racked up double-digit revenue growth in 2004 in all its primary segments. Its prime brokerage business, which provides hedge funds with clearing, lending and other services, is one of the three leaders in the industry. Founded in 1923, Bear Stearns grew from a small partnership, where the focus was on conserving capital. It has also profited by avoiding some areas that proved costly to many competitors.
