“A ringfence is a term used in investment banking to denote the virtual barrier that segregates an individual’s (or company’s) financial assets from the rest, with the primary purpose of protecting them from loss when engaging in riskier operations. Ringfence is a command warning the reader to set up legal, financial, physical and psychological barriers that will protect their wellbeing from the negative impact of life’s risky events such as death, divorce and abuse,”
