Encryption

Custodial holding

Your funds and securities are held by our custody and clearing partner, Apex Clearing Corporation.

At Apex, your investments are protected up to a maximum of $500,000 total, including $250,000 in cash balances through the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC). Please note: SIPC protection does not insure against the potential loss of market value.

Using the FDIC-insured Sweep Program

For uninvested funds, your Stash account is enrolled in something called the Apex FDIC-insured Sweep Program.

Deposits to the Sweep Program are covered by FDIC insurance up to the $250,000 limit per customer at each FDIC-insured bank that participates in the Sweep Program. Once your cash is deposited with the participating banks under the Sweep Program, such cash will no longer be covered by SIPC.
