    interesting acquisition...

    I suppose the "traditional" banking model has changed. Next cfr may buy a grocery chain (HEB?) so they can have exclusive banking, insurance and HR access.
    Well,,,,as long as it adds to the bottom line. But I just wonder why CFR hasnt seen fit to buy any smaller, profitable banks rahter than go this route...ie horizontal as oppossed to vertical integration of services.
