While 'product' AND 'bank' might be too vague, maybe a search with proper
bank names, 'citibank', 'dime bank', and perhaps 'broker', and brokerage
house names, 'morgan stanley', 'DLJ' or 'donaldson, lufkin, and jenrette',
and 'financial'. Try also 'products' AND 'instruments'.

If these don't help, I'm not sure what else to try, but you're welcome to
send me results and we can try winnowing and modifying from there...
