Custodians play an important role in the relationship ecosystem encompassing you, your clients, and your RIA. And, most certainly, all custodians are not the same. Each offers their own specialization, unique features, ways of doing business, or even reputation among your clients. Specifically, for you as an independent financial advisor, one custodian may fit better with your business model, or your clients may have a preference for where their assets are custodied. To accommodate these scenarios, Vicus Capital offers a multi-custodian approach with industry leaders Fidelity Investments® and Charles Schwab & Co., providing flexibility, options, and choice to help facilitate and contribute to the growth of your business. As two of the largest and most well-known custodial platforms in the country, Fidelity and Schwab can add strength and credibility to the one thing that matters most in our industry: relationships. For more information regarding our relationships with these custodians, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
