That time BNY Mellon spent four years not properly segregating customer assets, putting them at risk if BNY Mellon happened to go kablooey during those four years? Totally not BNY Mellon’s fault entirely, maybe!

BNY Mellon, the world’s biggest custody bank, was fined $199 million in April for failing to segregate customer funds during the financial crisis.
