We hope you’re enjoying your summer. Below are selected updates and articles from the month of July. Enjoy!
1) Starting tomorrow, Tuesday, August 1st, you can setup credentials for your Schwab Alliance account.
The merger between the TD Ameritrade and Charles Schwab platforms will take place over the Labor Day weekend, to be completed on Tuesday, September 5th (in one month). At that time, Charles Schwab will become the new custodian of all assets that are presently held through TD Ameritrade.
If you hold accounts at TD Ameritrade, please setup your Schwab credentials right away to ensure you’re ready to “hit the ground running” when assets move over on September 5th. Beginning tomorrow, you can do this by logging into your TD Ameritrade account at www.advisorclient.com, clicking “Create Schwab login” (as shown below), and following the prompts. As you do, please note the following:
- This transition will occur behind the scenes. Aside from setting up your Schwab credentials, no action will be needed from you.
- If you don’t already have credentials at www.advisorclient.com, no problem – click “Set up my profile” to create new credentials, and then proceed to creating Schwab login.
- Don’t forget – we’re here to help! If you run into any issues establishing credentials or have questions of any kind, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
