Accessing your Funds after Bumper's Closure

To access your Alpaca brokerage account going forward, you will need to create a new account via Alpaca’s website by following these steps:

  1. Visit and select “Sign Up” on the upper right hand corner of the website.  
  2. Please be sure to use the same sponsor email address that was associated with your Bumper account when you create your Alpaca account.
  3. Open a new Alpaca Account.
  4. Send an email to from the same email address associated with your Bumper and new Alpaca Account with the subject of “Transfer my holdings from Bumper to Alpaca”.
  5. Once we receive this email, we will move the assets from your Bumper account to your new Alpaca account within 24-48 hours.  

How will this transition impact my holdings?

  • Your account(s) assets (cash and securities positions) will be transferred internally within Alpaca from your Bumper account to your new Alpaca account.  After creating your Alpaca login, you will be able to access and transact in your Alpaca brokerage account. Please note, your account number will change and you will not be able to see historical activity in your Bumper account in your new Alpaca account.
