Advisors are independent and are not employees or agents of Charles Schwab & Co., Inc. ("Schwab"). Schwab selects advisors and checks their experience and credentials against criteria Schwab sets, such as years of experience managing investments, amount of assets managed, professional education, regulatory licensing, and business relationship as a client of Schwab. Advisors pay fees to Schwab in connection with referrals. Schwab does not supervise advisors and does not prepare, verify, or endorse information distributed by advisors. Investors must decide whether to hire an advisor and what authority to give him/her. Investors, not Schwab, are responsible for monitoring and evaluating an advisor’s service, performance, and account transactions.
