Asset safety has become a central concern for asset owners and fund managers alike. Scandals such as MF Global and the fines levied on some banks for their failure to properly segregate client assets, and failures such as Lehman’s, have shown the industry how their segregated investment portfolios can be abused by intermediaries on their global platforms, or locked for years when a major group fails. The unwinding of Lehman, in particular, has been a drawn out and often painful process.
