(SIPC).

SIPC provides an element of protection for investors whose money, stocks and other securities are stolen by a broker holding them or put at risk when the brokerage fails.

It was formed through the Securities Investors Protection Act of 1970 but it is a member body not a Federal agency - its members being the brokerages covered.
