SIPC vanguard

Post by sambb » Thu May 18, 2017 6:44 pm

I just read this on vanguard:
Vanguard funds not held in a brokerage account are held by The Vanguard Group, Inc., and are not protected by SIPC.

What are all thoughts? Time to upgrade? I dont like vanguard brokerage..

sambb, you've inspired me to write a draft of an article for the Bogleheads' Wiki. You can read the draft here:
SIPC protection of mutual funds
I would appreciate your thoughts on it.
