Your Financial Consultant can provide professional guidance to help you stay on track with your financial goals. They can help with things like being a sounding board for investment decisions, helping to position your portfolio to weather volatile markets, and providing an informative point of view.
Your Financial Consultant makes recommendations based on you—your goals, your financial situation, your tolerance for risk, and any other factors that should be considered so that the guidance you receive fits what you want to accomplish. Their compensation is structured to help limit conflict of interest, focusing on your priorities.
Schwab believes in transparent pricing for all our products and services. There are no fees to work with your Financial Consultant, but the implementation of recommendations by your Financial Consultant may result in trade commissions or other fees, charges, or expenses. Your Financial Consultant will review any applicable fees and commissions you'll be paying, so those costs will be transparent, and you'll understand exactly what you're paying.
Your Financial Consultant1 is paid in several ways. First, they receive a "base salary" to serve all the clients in their practice. Financial Consultants also receive two other sources of compensation: service and solutions pay. To learn more, visit our Financial Consultant's compensation page.
Dedicated Financial Consultants are generally made available to clients with $500,000 or more in assets at Schwab and more complex investing needs. That said, you and every Schwab client can count on tools, research, and 24/7 support from investment professionals to help you reach your goals.
All of our Financial Consultants provide highly personalized advice based on your goals, asset size, and investing needs. They can also connect you to specialists when you have more complex planning and financial needs, such as a trust, an estate, and a fixed income.
The implementation of recommendations by your Financial Consultant may result in trade commissions or other fees, charges, or expenses.
