The article focuses on the merger and acquisition activity in the financial services industry in the U.S., in 2005. Private equity investors led the surge in the merger and acquisition activity, targeting companies in almost unknown sectors, joining together to take bigger bites, and throwing in with strategic investors. New York Stock Exchange's merger with electronic exchange Archipelago was the most publicized deal by far. In the banking sector, relationships were the name of the game. Many of the top bankers of Morgan Stanley & Co. Inc., streamed out amid the battle for the control of the firm.
