A lot of people are suddenly waking up to The Great Taking, which is reorienting their perspective about the safety and ownership of their assets. A modest amount of investigation and probing reveals that “their” shares and bonds are registered with the entities Cede and Corp and DTCC which are, in fact, part of the ownership structure. The people who thought of themselves as the actual owners are discovering that they are, instead, merely a person who has a “security entitlement” and that the broker(s) handling their shares and bonds may have (probably have) lent those assets out as collateral to other financial entities and players.
Ask the question “who has the senior claim on “my” shares &/or bonds and you are likely to get the runaround. The true answer is that nobody really knows, but it’s probably not you.
This scenario exemplifies a broader issue we’re facing: the struggle to obtain clear, straightforward information from the financial system. It really shouldn’t be this hard.
