What happens to my account if Stash goes out of business?

Stash has every intention of sticking around for the long term. However, if anything were to happen to Stash that required us to close up shop, you would maintain complete control of your brokerage account. All the investments in your Stash portfolio (from American Innovators to Young Money) are owned by you. Your money will be safe. Your account will not face any penalties if anything happens to us.

Stash Invest and Stash Retire accounts are custodied by Apex Clearing Corporation where they are SIPC-protected (up to $500,000 per account type and $250,000 of that can be in cash) against losses resulting from the failure of a broker-dealer. It’s important to know that $500,000 is the standard amount that SIPC offers for investment companies. Important note: Investments are not FDIC insured, not bank guaranteed, and may lose value.
