Schwartz elaborated that ” If you hold billions of dollars of other people’s money for indefinite periods, the temptation to speculate with those funds is irresistible. Verifiable checks will only be sufficient if there are verifiable checks that make such risk-taking virtually impossible.”

David mentioned, “Regulation that punishes after the fact wouldn’t catch it. Investor due diligence won’t either. Of course, many people will say it could be, and likely is, happening, but they’ll be shouted down by accusations of sowing FUD or upsetting a system making people money.”
