Are your investments safe with your broker?
A bivio user recently asked...
  As club treasurer, I proposed to move all our drips to our Buy and Hold Account.  I met resistance from a few of our members who questioned the safety of Buy and Hold and our putting all our eggs in one basket!  Any ideas on how I could respond? 
Buy and, as should any broker with which you do business, has SIPC insurance in the amount of $500,000 (of which up to $100,000 covers your cash balance) which insures your investments in the unlikely event that the broker becomes insolvent.   For more information  you might want to visit and click on the SIPC link at the bottom of the page.
