A broker-dealer is a brokerage firm that buys and sells securities (i.e., stocks, bonds, mutual funds and other investment products) for its clients, for its own account or both. Most broker-dealers are required to register with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and be members of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). They offer a variety of services and typically fall under two categories: full-service firms and discount brokerage firms. Full-service firms can handle almost any type of financial transaction and they may offer other services, such as investment planning. Although discount broker-dealers may charge less per transaction, the products they offer depend on what licenses they hold. For more in-depth information about broker-dealers, please visit the SEC or FINRA website.

The LPL Financial SIPC Membership provides account protection up to a maximum of $500,000 per customer, of which $250,000 may be claims for cash. An explanatory brochure is available at www.sipc.org. Additionally, through London Insurers, LPL Financial accounts have additional securities protection to cover the net equity of customer accounts up to an overall aggregate firm limit of $575,000,000 subject to conditions and limitations. The account protection applies when an SIPC member firm fails financially and is unable to meet obligations to securities clients, but it does not protect against losses from the rise and fall in the market value of investments.
