You Won't Believe The MF Global Ad That's In The Latest Edition Of Barron's

A perusal of the latest issue of Barron’s turned up the following ad for brokerage firm MF Global (below.)

Somehow the ad, published Saturday, reads a little differently now, in light of recent events [2]: Though no one’s been formally accused, the firm is now under investigation by regulators and by the FBI after hundreds of millions of dollars belonging to customers [3] went missing.

The CEO — former New Jersey governor, former Senator and former Goldman Sachs chief Jon Corzine — resigned today without severance [4] and according to the New York Times, has hired a criminal defence attorney [5].
