If someone got their identity stolen is it "extra risky" to have your checking / ATM at same institution as portfolio investments ? If someone got your ATM card and PIN, could they get at your investments, etc.
Good question. I am interested in the answer, although I don't have my cash with Fido or VG apart from MM funds.
With the VG MM funds I do have check books and if they were stolen I can't see that there would be increased risk to the portfolio. I would expect that if I had a cash account with ATM card that only those accounts would be at risk if I lost my card or had it stolen.
