The annual fee for Schwab Private Client starts at 0.80% of assets and decreases at higher asset levels (see chart). Enrollment is for clients with minimum investable assets of $1 million. Fees are applied quarterly, and there are no withdrawal fees.

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 for specific wealth planning or management issues.

We believe in the long-term benefits of relying on our traditional disciplines around asset allocation and diversification—even during periods of market volatility. That said, if you find your risk tolerance or long-term goals are changing, you can contact your Private Client Advisor for guidance at any time.
