Review of your portfolio is managed on an as-needed basis with your Private Client Advisor and continues as long as you are enrolled in the Schwab Private Client program. The frequency of portfolio reviews is agreed upon between you and your dedicated advisor.

You will first work with your Private Client Advisor to amend your financial plan. With your approval, your advisor will adjust your portfolio to align with your revised plan. You and your advisor may also consult with Schwab specialists to address specific wealth planning or management needs.

We believe in the long-term benefits of relying on our traditional disciplines around asset allocation and diversification, tuning out the noise to the extent possible and sticking to your long-term goals. That said, if at any time you have concerns, you can contact your Private Client Advisor for guidance.
