How Your Account is Protected
To provide our customers with the peace of mind they deserve, all of our clients' accounts are protected up to an aggregate of $20 million per account. The Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) fund provides coverage for individual customer accounts up to $500,000 with a limitation of $100,000 on claims for cash. Southwest Securities supplements this basic coverage with an Excess Securities Policy purchased from a major insurance company totaling $19.5 million. This coverage does not protect against fluctuations in the market value of securities, including loss of principal on any investment or cash.
