I understand the name vantage point however perhaps RIABiz can provide some research on Excess SIPC Coverage not being available at JP Morgan? Having excess SIPC coverage seems to be commonplace in the industry. There was a posting which states JP Morgan had decided to drop their Excess SIPC coverage?

I believe all RIAs should be aware of what amounts of SIPC and FDIC coverage their custody providers make available particularly in comparison to other custodians.

RIABiz, can you please research this public post? I find it hard to believe frankly JP Morgan has no Excess SIPC coverage.
