After the MF Global fiasco, I've spend countless hours online and on the phone with brokerages while researching my options for holding assets in Client name rather than in the broker's 'street name'. I've come out empty handed with a lot of closed doors, and 'sorry it's not possible nor efficient' or just simply clueless customer service reps. I would like to know if anyone can suggest a brokerage that allow direct book entry in customer name for fixed income government or corporate bonds? PS. I know about TreasuryDirect however this is for US citizens & residents only.
