Schwab and TD Ameritrade Merger

Dear Clients,

As you may have heard in the news, Charles Schwab and TD Ameritrade have reached an agreement for Schwab to acquire TD Ameritrade. The combined company will retain the Schwab name, and will reflect the best that each legacy firm has to offer, including leading wealth management and trading platforms.

For now, the transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close in the second half of 2020. During that time, there should be no impact to how you work with us or TD Ameritrade Institutional.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out. If you would like to learn more about the transaction, visit www.amtd.com for details.

Sincerely,

Sandy, Carol and Erin
