National City Wants to Beef Up Brokerage Biz

The Cleveland bank would add to its fee-based income by pursuing other revenue streams.


David Daberko, CEO of National City (NCC), said in a speech Friday that the company would like to expand its investment-banking and brokerage businesses.

Although no specific details have been released, the Cleveland-based company's plan looks like a smart move, especially in light of its November earnings warning. In that announcement, Daberko said National City was having a tougher time generating income from loans as interest rates have edged higher.
