Account Protection Is Our Priority

We take account security and protection very seriously. From cutting edge encryption technology to multiple login protections, we take every precaution to ensure your assets are safe and your account is secure.

Secure Login System

In addition to a creating a unique username and password, all Zacks Trade clients receive a security code device that generates a unique, random numbers that must also be entered each time you log in. In lieu of using a physical card, clients can use our IBKR Mobile app for smartphones.

Using our secure login system adds an essential extra layer of security to your account.

Participation in the Secure Login System is mandatory. Zacks Trade recommends clients request a secure log in card when they fund their account. Otherwise, new clients will automatically receive a card by mail the following month that the account is opened.

Account Insurance Protection

Customer securities accounts at Zacks Trade, a division of LBMZ Securities, are protected by the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”) for a maximum coverage of $500,000 (with a cash sublimit of $250,000)1, and under our clearing firm’s excess SIPC policy with certain underwriters at Lloyd’s of London for up to an additional $30 million (with a cash sublimit of $900,000) subject to an aggregate limit of $150 million. As with all securities firms, SIPC coverage provides protection against failure of a broker-dealer, not against loss of market value of securities.2 Please note that SIPC Insurance Protection does not protect accounts that are compromised or when fraudulent activity occurs. Please visit the SIPC website here to learn more.

2 SIPC is a non-profit, membership corporation funded by broker-dealers that are members of SIPC. For more information about SIPC and answers to frequently asked questions (such as how SIPC works, what is protected, how to file a claim, etc.), please refer to the following websites:
