NFS also has arranged for additional protection for cash and covered securities called "excess of SIPC" coverage, from Lloyd's of London together with other insurers1. This additional protection would only be used when SIPC coverage is exhausted. Total aggregate excess of SIPC coverage available through NFS's excess of SIPC policy is $1 billion.

Neither coverage protects against a decline in the market value of securities, nor do they cover other claims for losses incurred while broker-dealers remain in business.
