RBC Insured Deposits (“the Program”) is an automated cash sweep option that sweeps uninvested cash balances in clients’ accounts into interest-bearing deposit accounts with RBC affiliate banks and additional unaffiliated banks (“Program Banks”) up to applicable limits. Availability is subject to certain restrictions. The Program provides up to $5 million in Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) insurance coverage per depositor in each insurable ownership capacity (“Deposit Limit”). Each deposit account constitutes a direct obligation of the Program Bank and is not directly or indirectly an obligation of RBC Capital Markets, LLC. More information regarding FDIC insurance is available at http://www.fdic.gov.

RBC Insured Deposits are not subject to market risk and potential value loss, but are subject to the risk of a Program Bank’s failure. In the event a Program Bank fails, deposits at each Program Bank are eligible for FDIC coverage up to applicable limits. Deposit balances in excess of the Deposit Limit will be invested with Excess Banks and are not covered by FDIC insurance. Currently, the Primary Excess Bank is City National Bank (“CNB”), an RBC Affiliate Bank. Monies held in RBC Insured Deposits are not covered by Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”). For retirement accounts, balances in excess of the Deposit Limit are invested in an unaffiliated money market fund. Money market mutual fund investments are not insured by the FDIC or any government agency; they are instead covered by SIPC.

Please see the RBC Insured Deposits Program Terms and Conditions, and  Cash Sweep Program Overview for more information.

Investment and insurance products offered through RBC Capital Markets, LLC are not insured by the FDIC or any other federal government agency, are not deposits or other obligations of, or guaranteed by, a bank or any bank affiliate, and are subject to investment risks, including possible loss of the principal amount invested.
