Independent Plan Providers and Schwab
Retirement Business Services (RBS)
This solution is ideal for clients who want to pair with independent plan providers of their choice, supported by the services of a trusted custodian. Working together, you get an ideal combination of expertise and support from an independent recordkeeper, an independent investment advisor, and Schwab.1
With Schwab's commitment to open architecture, independent plan providers have access to a wide array of investments that give them flexibility and choice when building a retirement plan.
You can choose from mutual funds from Schwab and collective trust funds from Charles Schwab Trust Bank as well as choices from other fund providers, and you can leverage our portfolio management resources. You can also trade a unitized fund containing company stock, customized portfolios of multiple mutual funds, or actively managed accounts just as easily as you would trade a mutual fund.
