ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the possibility of acquisition of Advest Group Inc. by Ryan Beck & Co. Inc., the regional investment bank and large retail broker. It is reported that New Jersey-based Ryan Beck, which has bought several retail brokers in recent years, is also expanding its investment-banking group as part of preparing the bank for an eventual spinoff from its parent, Florida's BankAtlantic Bancorp Inc. Rumors of a spinoff for Ryan have surfaced in the past and were consistently denied by the firm. But several analysts believe the spinoff will happen.
