How am I protected if Stash ever goes out of business?

Stash plans on being around for a long time. However, even if something were to happen to Stash, the cash you’ve invested in your Stash account (including ETFs or stocks) would remain in your control.

No matter what, your investments are always yours. All Stash accounts are held by our trusted partner and custodian Apex Clearing, a registered broker-dealer regulated by FINRA.

All investments held by Apex are protected by the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC).

Stash Invest, Retire, and Custodial accounts are in the custody of Apex Clearing Corporation which is SIPC-protected up to $500,000 total, including $250,000 in cash balances.

This protects against losses resulting from the failure of a broker-dealer. The $500,000 amount is standard for investment companies.

Please note: Investments are not FDIC insured, not bank guaranteed, and may lose value. SIPC protection does not insure against the potential loss of market value.
