SIPC protection for IB UK-based accounts

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by risktaker, Oct 29, 2006.

  1. I have a European-based friend considering opening an acct with IB's UK office and we're wondering if SIPC protection still applies to foreigners with IB's UK office OR would the Lloyds policy be the only "protection"?
     
  2. Anyone from IB wish to reply?

    Because IB LLC is the carrying broker SIPC and Lloyd’s protection apply for IBUK clients.
     
  4. Thanks Def.
