Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette

Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette (DLJ) was an innovative U.S investment bank founded in 1959 by William H. Donaldson, Richard Jenrette, and Dan Lufkin. Known for its initiative in conducting high quality independent corporate research, DLJ offered extensive financial services including securities underwriting, investment banking, market research, and asset management, and was a dominant player in high-yield fixed-income securities. It was eventually acquired by Credit Suisse for $11.5 billion in 2000 after a successful period of expansion and diversification which included an online brokerage initiative.
