Are the Greenwich Lottery Winners Fronting for a Client?

Yesterday, a trio of Greenwich money managers announced that they'd won one of the largest Powerball jackpots in history, after nearly a month of sitting on their hands following the drawing. Today come the conspiracy theories: What if the money managers are just ... money managers? So goes one anonymously sourced story in the Daily Mail, which alleges that the group is in fact acting on behalf of one of their firm's clients, who was the real winner and didn't want to face the publicity. Which would help explain the rather suspicious fact that three finance guys — who perhaps haven't actually touched loose pocket change in decades — split the cost of a $1 ticket.
