Gary DeWaal, group general counsel at Newedge, noted that Peregrine Financial Group (PFG) was able to dodge regulatory audit checks of its customer segregated funds for more than 20 years. DeWaal says that simply wouldn’t happen if the US adopted the system used in China’s futures markets called the China Futures Margin Monitoring Center Co. Ltd. (CFMMC). In November 2012, the National Futures Association and CME Group did just that, hiring AlphaMetrix to take on the job of confirming the money FCMs say they have in their segregated accounts, with money that is held at the bank.
