SIPC protection / foreign / currency

  1. Hello Guys,

    here is an important question,
    i could not find an answer to it anywhere, maybe someone
    of you knows a bit more.

    Are accounts held by non-US resident persons SIPC insured ?
    Special case: IB multicurrency account.
    Or, does IB's additional insurance cover the risk ?

    And what if the account is EUR or GBP denominated ?

    Please, if anyone knows a bit, state it here, since
    information on this topic is really hard to gather.
