SIPC & Lloyd's Insurance http://www.interactivebrokers.com/e...hp?ib_entity=uk 1. Questions about SIPC Let's see if I understand how SIPC works: a) I'm only insured on securities account. Nothing is covered on futures account. b) I can get SIPC-insured even if I'm an international client - $400,000 for securities; $100,000 for cash However how does the market value of my stocks, options, warrants, debt be determined? On the date you declare bankruptcy (if occurred), or else? 2. Lloyd's Insurance The proection offerred seems to be attractive. However it has no much details about the insurance scheme in IB's website. Is there any limitation for this insurance, or to get the claims? Does it insure securities account only? For the rest $20.5million, what does it cover? Who is eligible to get the claims? Any restirctions/requirements? Is there any link which has the details about this Lloyd's insurance? Thanks!
