Indeed, under UK financial regs (FCA), client funds must be ringfenced and are not to be used as operating capital. And having been in a place where there were rumours of that, it's taken very seriously. If you have knowledge (or even a strong suspicion) that it's going on and don't report it then you can be held culpable too.

Sometimes regulated financial markets are a jolly good thing.
