SIPC reimburses clients the cash value of their securities up to $500,000 per client. Any cash in a client’s account would be reimbursed by SIPC up to $250,000 (reducing the $500,000 above).
RBC Capital Markets, LLC has purchased an additional policy that offers coverage in excess of the protection provided by SIPC.
