I made the point years ago to my partners that as a point of logic the large dealers are severely restricted in their ability to manage themselves.

The reasoning is as follows:

Any one of the many top traders working full time in their specific area of responsibility necessarily know a lot more about it than any manager possibly can.

In other words, any manager will have his hands full keeping up with what any one of the traders is up to, making it impossible, for all practical purposes, to keep up with all of them.

So shareholders should expect things to periodically malfunction from lack of sufficient oversight and supervision as a point of logic.
