Section 1 Body
When the client is your primary focus, your business benefits.
Drive down costs for your clients
Serve clients with an offering that is intended to drive down cost and give investors more. Our focus is to start with the client's interest in mind and give them a choice of how they want to work with us.
Make it about their needs
When you run a Schwab franchise, you can make decisions based on your clients' needs — that means you're free to be the financial advisor you really want to be.
When looking out for your client's interests is your main goal, client satisfaction and ongoing loyalty are natural outcomes.

YOUR REALITYCommissions and fees only
YOUR FUTURESharing in multiple revenue streams
Section 2 Body
Our model is different than the standard Gross Dealer Concession (GDC) model. With Schwab, you share in multiple revenue streams on assets you have today and assets you gather going forward.
Get paid like a firm, not a financial advisor
Our revenue share is straightforward and transparent. You share in multiple revenue streams and are not subject to GDC haircuts.
Earn revenue on every client choice
Revenue is earned on the asset base, not on select investment types.
Get credit for every asset
You receive credit on all new account lead flow and assets associated with your branch territory.
