Account statements are your most frequent client touch point and provide a concrete way to reinforce a high level of service.  Pershing’s brokerage account statements topped the list for Brokerage Investor Statements in DALBAR’s 2018 Trends & Best Practices in Investor Statementsi. Pershing landed the top spot for the first time since 2013 due to a series of improvements made to its statements over the past few years. The firm was ranked second in last year’s ranking.

Account asset protection

Pershing remains focused on the safekeeping, servicing, segregation and reporting of assets held in their custody.
Pershing is a member of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC®).  As a result, securities in your account are protected up to $500,000 (including $250,000 for claims for cash).  For details, please see  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.
