Clients can start investing in your portfolios using a straightforward online enrollment process. First, they’ll answer a few questions to help determine their investor profile and complete the account opening process. Then, you’ll review the recommended portfolio and be able to make adjustments before you confirm and their money is invested.

Ongoing account management is easy and paperless, too. Whenever clients log in they’ll see the customized experience for your firm, and have automatic access to statements and performance reports.

This platform was built with your specific needs in mind, enabling you to integrate with many leading third party technology solutions so you can leverage the account data in other places such as your CRM or portfolio management tools. And, because assets in Institutional Intelligent Portfolios™ are custodied with Schwab, these accounts are conveniently displayed in Schwab Advisor Center® and available through Schwab data downloads.

Schwab has been advocating and innovating on behalf of independent registered investment advisors (RIAs) for over 25 years, and Institutional Intelligent Portfolios™ is just another way RIAs who custody with Schwab have the support they need to stay ahead of the curve.
