Pershing is a member of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC®). As a result, securities in your account are protected up to $500,000. For details, please see sipc.org. Please note that SIPC does not protect against loss due to market fluctuation. In addition to SIPC protection, Pershing provides coverage in excess of SIPC limits from certain underwriters at Lloyd’s, in conjunction with another commercial insurance company. The excess of SIPC insurance program provides the following protection for Pershing LLC’s global client assets:
- An aggregate loss limit of $1 billion for eligible securities – over all client accounts
- A per-client loss limit of $1.9 million for cash awaiting reinvestment – within the aggregate loss limit of $1 billion
SIPC and the excess of SIPC insurance policy do not protect against loss due to market fluctuation.
An excess of SIPC claim would only arise if Pershing failed financially and client assets for covered accounts as defined by SIPC cannot be located due to theft, misplacement, destruction, burglary, robbery, embezzlement, abstraction, failure to obtain or maintain possession or control of client securities, or to maintain the special reserve bank account required by applicable rules.
The leader of the excess of SIPC coverage program is Lloyd’s, which currently holds A+ ratings from Standard & Poor’s (S&P), AA rating from Fitch and an A rating from A.M. Best. These ratings are based on the financial strength of the company and are subject to change by the rating agencies at any time. For more information about Lloyd’s, please see lloyds.com.
