Can investment assets be garnished?

Recommended Posts

I have an investment account, in which the assets are forex and on margin (collateral for a loan).  Can these investment assets be garnished?


It depends on what type of investment account it is.  401k and IRA type accounts are exempt from garnishment and seizure.  If the account is collateral for a loan they likely can't seize it because the other creditor has first priority.
