§ 165. Segregation of investments; title to be taken in descriptive name.


Every private banker shall segregate and keep separate and apart from all other property and assets of the individual or partnership all securities and property, and the evidences of title thereto, in which funds held by him as a private banker and the surplus used by him in his private banking business have been invested.
