Two Gone from Mother Merrill

Reported by InvestmentWires Staff, 

Famed bond-picker BlackRock will bring Boston Partners stock analyst and founder Wayne Archambo onboard in January. Adding to the intrigue is word that Blackrock is making a play to purchase Boston Partners. The firms deny that a deal is in the works. Archembo and Boston Partners announced a settlement of litigation stemming from his resignation of the firm. The settlement requires him to honor his contract through August 25, 2002 and bars him from soliciting Boston Partners clients through that time.
