Brokerage Accounts - Solvability Broker


I was wondering how you guys work with different brokerage accounts. How much of your capital do you allocate to one broker?

I am working with DEGIRO at the moment. A low cost broker based in Amsterdam. Do you consider the risk your broker could go out of business and work with limited capital on one account?

What are you trading with these guys? If you own say, stocks of a company, the bankruptcy of the broker should not affect your holdings. The broker is just the agent who facilitated the purchase; they don’t have a liability to you.
