Lazard (LAZ) has five weeks to find buyers for all or parts of RBS' (RBS) equities and advisory ops, according to RBS execs. The 3,500 job cuts announced last week won't kick in until RBS concludes it can’t find a home for the employees elsewhere, though execs are up against the deadline of the bank's Feb. 23 earnings report.
