One Mutual Fund Clearing Client Pulls Over $50B From Schwab


Schwab is saying goodbye to a big mutual fund clearing services client. Today the San Francisco-based brokerage giant revealed that such a client pulled $29.5 billion off Schwab last month and pulled another $22 billion this month, as part of "a scheduled transfer of assets to an internal platform."

Schwab did not identify the client.
