So you're telling me that there are people who have access to the best traders in the world and are able to imitate their trades and you don't think it's happening anywhere on the planet?

Transactional businesses...

What you're asking is do people steal - then the answer is as long as something has value someone will probably try steal it. There are people with access to billions of other peoples money, do they steal it? Some like Madoff do, but most don't.

If your asking is it done systematically as part of a legitimate business plan then no it isn't.
