THE TD AMERITRADE ASSET PROTECTION GUARANTEE
TD Ameritrade is committed to delivering to our clients one of the highest levels of security in the industry — at no cost to you. That means they will reimburse you for the cash or shares of securities from your account that are lost as a result of unauthorized activity. They are promising you this protection, which adds to the provisions that already govern your account, in case unauthorized activity ever occurs and they determine it was through no fault of your own. (Unauthorized activity does not include actions or transactions undertaken by or at the request of you, your registered investment advisor or family members, or anyone else whom you have allowed access to your account or to your account information for any purpose, such as trading securities, writing checks or making withdrawals or transfers.) This guarantee does not extend to the market value of investments, which fluctuate and may lose value
