The measures we take to protect client assets
Schwab is committed to staying financially strong, and we have confidence in our ongoing financial health. We run our business with a sound capital structure and position our company for long-term strength and stability. We take appropriate actions to help give our clients peace of mind about the security of their accounts.
Keeping client securities separate from broker-dealer securities
Client securities — such as stocks and bonds that are fully paid for or excess margin securities — are segregated from broker-dealer securities, in compliance with the SEC’s Customer Protection Rule. This is a legal requirement for all broker-dealers.
In the unlikely event of insolvency of a broker-dealer, these segregated assets are not available to general creditors and are protected against creditors’ claims. Rigorous reporting and auditing requirements have been put in place by government regulators to help ensure all broker-dealers comply with this rule.
