SIPC and Excess SIPC. FirstSouthwest provides clients with insurance protection for amounts up to $500,000 each, with a limit of $250,000 on claims for cash awaiting reinvestment. We also have "Excess SIPC" insurance from a third party insurer to protect client accounts up to their net equity for loss of securities and cash held at FirstSouthwest. This protection is in addition to the protection provided by the Securities and Investors Protection Act, which is administered by SIPC, and is subject to certain conditions and limitations. Details are available upon request. Please note that the above coverage does not protect against loss of the market value of securities.
