The merger of three major banks could result in big payouts for Merrill’s former chief executive, Paul Otellini.
But analysts warn that the merger will also leave some former executives behind and could leave investors exposed.
Weber Grills, one of the world’s largest financial services firms, has already announced its plan to buy out rival Credit Suse.
But the merged firm will also need to find a new CEO to take over the firm.
A report by Bloomberg said the merger could mean the merger is a “dead letter,” meaning the deal will not close as planned.
The new merged company will have to focus on getting its debt under control and improve its performance.
Credit Suse’s financial services unit is also expected to be in the mix for the new company, Bloomberg said.
