PFG’s bankruptcy has been very slow and arduous. This news is a ray of light for victims. US Bank is the fifth largest bank in the country with deep enough pockets to make PFG victims whole. While there are still no guarantees about how much we might receive back from PFG in the end, this is certainly a positive development.
