Control of your account is and will always remain in your own hands, even if AgentRisk is acquired, goes public or ceases doing business. If AgentRisk is acquired or goes public, your brokerage account would remain in your own name and you would be free to add or withdraw money at any time. In the unlikely event AgentRisk were to cease doing business, your account would be held by our brokerage partner until you transferred your account to a new broker or chose to liquidate your account to receive a check. During this period your account would not be managed by our brokerage partner.
Assets invested with AgentRisk through our custodian, Interactive Brokers, are covered by SIPC insurance. When a brokerage firm is closed due to bankruptcy or other financial difficulties and client assets are missing, the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”) steps in as quickly as possible and works to return clients’ cash, stock and other securities. SIPC provides up to $500,000 of protection on securities held per legal entity and up to $250,000 in cash in excess of what is not recovered per legal entity.

Trusted Third-Party Custodian
When you invest with AgentRisk, your assets are held by Interactive Brokers , one of the most trusted and established brokerage firms in the world, rated Top Online Broker for the Sixth Consecutive Year by Barron’s 2016.
In accordance with SEC rules (particularly 15c3-3, the “Client Protection Rule”), Interactive Brokers protects client assets by segregating them and ensuring that they are not used for any other purpose, including loans to investors or institutions, corporate investment purposes, or corporate spending. Regulators and independent auditors periodically review IB financial records to ensure clients’ assets are accurately tracked and held separately from the firm’s own holdings. It could be a civil and/or criminal violation if an investor’s assets were inappropriately commingled.
When you invest with AgentRisk, your assets are held safely in a cash account. A cash account assures you that your assets are fully paid for and may not be rehypothecated (loaned out to other clients). This is in contrast to opening a margin account where you agree to loan out the securities you hold in the account as collateral to other broker/dealers and risk facing the problems that can arise for margin account clients when their stock leaves the broker/dealers custody.
AgentRisk is regulated by the U.S Securities and Exchange Commission and abides by all applicable laws and regulations.
