The article informs that Lazard's recent filing for an initial public offering, coupled with last year's successful IPO of Greenhill & Co., has stirred the speculative pot at four tiny West Coast boutiques with ties, however remote, to the fabled Four Horsemen of the pre-bubble era, Hambrecht & Quist, Alex Brown, Robertson Stephens and Montgomery Securites, according to Wall Street bankers. The newer boutiques, JMP Securities LLC, Think Equity Partners, Perseus Graup LLC and Mantgomery & Co., were all mentioned by bankers as possible IPO candidates. Most are said to favor the Four Horsemen model of a strong banking operation with a sales-trading overlay.
