RBC Capital Markets, LLC, is a member of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC). SIPC is a nonprofit membership corporation funded by its member security broker-dealers. SIPC protects the securities clients of its members in the event of the failure of a member firm. 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, also offers protection if a client’s securities are missing because of theft by an outsider, computer fraud or theft by an employee for personal gain, subject to that policy’s terms, conditions and limits. Moreton Capital Markets also has a Fidelity bond which covers any potential employee dishonesty.

Note: Neither SIPC protection, nor protection in excess of that offered by SIPC, covers a decline in the value of a client’s assets due to market loss.
