Greetings, JWinthrop, and welcome. You wrote:

And you almost certainly won't ever find such an arrangement, either. The FDIC was created to protect and restore confidence in the banking industry through the insurance of bank accounts. Brokerage accounts are a different animal entirely. Even if a bank has a relationship with a broker, the money used for investments made through that broker would not be insured by the FDIC.
