What happens to my account if Stash goes out of business?
We have every intention of sticking around for the long term. However, if anything happens to Stash that required us to close up shop, you would maintain control of your account.
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.
