French term or phrase: vaut "distinction"
The text is from a document on bank regulation (regulation of investment funds.). The bit I don't understand at all is "vaut "distinction"".
Si le prospectus mentionne la ségrégation des actifs du fonds, alors ce critere est nécessairement vérifié puisque la ségrégation vaut « distinction »,
Si l'identification n'est pas indiquée dans le prospectus, elle est imposée légalement pour les sociétés d'investissement qui dépendent de la FSA, de la SEC, et du NASD.

disagree  B D Finch: "Que vaut la distinction" in your first two references means something quite different from "did ... deserve the distinction" in your third ref. and "deserve distinction" would make no sense in the context.
