The News: Making Money the Old Fashioned Way

Wall Street's recovery doesn't lie only in government funds and downsizing, but in the resurgence of old-fashioned relationship banking. When pharmaceutical behemoth Wyeth needed advice on its $86 billion merger with Pfizer, CEO Bernard Poussot turned to his old colleague Francois Maisonrouge of Evercore Partners. Says Maisonrouge: "The relationship banker is the person who is going to fulfill his or her professional mission by putting himself or herself at the disposal of a decision maker. You're not building your career on their back, they're building their industrial purpose on your back."

Still not sure you should get out there and meet people?
