CHICAGO — Charlotte-based Bank of America Corp. has scaled back its Midwestern presence by firing senior bankers in Chicago and St. Louis and, separately, it dismantled its affordable housing group as part of an overhaul of its investment banking business, sources said.

The extent of the public finance cuts was unclear as Bank of America representatives declined to provide details as to how many positions were eliminated or in what regional offices, referring instead to a statement released Jan. 15 announcing the elimination of 650 positions in its larger global markets and investment banking businesses.
