Custodial Relationships & Customer Asset Protection

The financial crisis of 2008 saw the end of “too-big-to-fail”. Recent regulatory changes seek to codify this precept. Individuals, corporate and financial entities now seek the best asset protection mechanisms. The custody arrangement allows market participants to park assets with separate entities unable to put those assets at risk through proprietary trading activities or risky practices. The arrangements provide an additional level of protection for clients, in some instances, to cash, securities and other assets. Taylor Louis LLP will review and negotiate these custodial relationships (bi-party and tri-party) to help protect client assets in the event of another financial meltdown. We can advise on these arrangements in light of current and future economic volatilities.
