CMI in Focus

Thomas Murray maintains a wealth of information through the whole post-trade lifecycle of securities. In a series of monthly reports, Thomas Murray will be investigating global trends in the industry through analysis of particular areas of capital market infrastructure.

This month CMI in Focus addresses how local safekeeping practices influence the security of invested assets. Events such as Madoff and the defaults of Lehmans, MF Global and others, have highlighted the importance of asset recoverability/portability to such an extent that investors concerns have transcended even to the plain vanilla securities held at Central Securities Depositories (CSDs).
