The merger of BankAmerica Corporation and NationsBank Corporation, prompted NationsBank CEO Hugh McColl to propose to put the together the two investment banks, BancAmerica Robertson Stephens and NationsBanc Montgomery Securities.
Ultimately the combination did not happen as Robertson Stephens was sold off in 1998 to FleetBoston. Though, FleetBoston was later acquired by Bank of America in 2004, Robertson Stephens was closed in 2002.
