WASHINGTON, D.C. – February 25, 2019 – The Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC), which protects investors at failed brokerage firms, is pleased to announce the launch of its new website at www.SIPC.org.
“SIPC is committed to making sure investors know where to turn in the event their brokerage firm fails and their assets are missing,” said SIPC President and CEO Stephen P. Harbeck. “Our new website makes this information more accessible and easier to understand for investors, brokerage firms, legislators and financial services professionals.”The new website features a streamlined design and user-friendly navigation to help visitors access SIPC’s resources and information quickly and with ease. New features such as an animated video help explain who SIPC is and how SIPC helps investors at failed brokerage firms. The website has been constructed for easy navigation from a laptop, tablet, or mobile phone.
In the rare event of a brokerage firm failure, the new website also helps customers with clear, easy-to-follow instructions for filing claims. Last year, SIPC introduced the capability of filing claims electronically.
SIPC’s new website will be regularly updated with SIPC news and information. Please visit www.SIPC.org for more information.
