Keydata falls into administration

Investment firm Keydata Services has gone bust, leaving its 85,000 clients uncertain about the future of its £2.8bn of funds. City watchdog the Financial Services Authority (FSA) has placed the firm into administration with Pricewaterhouse-Coopers (PwC).  PwC is now hunting for a buyer for the firm’s assets but a liquidation of the company remains a possibility. It is hoped all investments will be returned but clients are likely to lose out on promised gains.
