TWO St Albans-based financial firms affected by the collapse of US bank Lehman Brothers have gone into administration.

Sister companies NDF and Defined Returns Ltd (DRL), which together have 35,000 customers, sold Lehman-backed structured financial products to around 10 per cent of their customers.
