Both institutions have decades long track records as leading custodians for independent Investment Advisors and their clients. While many broker dealers failed, needed government aid or were forced to merge during the 2008 Financial Crisis, neither Charles Schwab & Company nor TD Ameritrade required assistance due to their conservative capital structures and strict internal controls. In addition to financial strength, we utilize custodians with outstanding customer service, leading technology and open platforms that do not emphasize proprietary investment products.
