Release No. IA-2876


  1. SEC simply require independent custody of all client assets
  2. That the independent custodians be required to send statements independently to clients
  3. That all deducted fees be disclosed to the client

This would stop fraud mentioned in release and would not cost you or us money.
Thank You.
