WHAT MEASURES ARE TAKEN BY THE THIRD-PARTY CUSTODIAN TO PROTECT CLIENT ASSETS?
If you choose to work with CCM, Schwab Advisor Services, a division of Charles Schwab & Co., Inc., will be your custodian. Clients grant CCM a limited power of attorney, which limits CCM's actions regarding your Schwab account. Schwab will allow us to make allocation adjustments and deduct management fees. Schwab's primary objective is to protect you.
More detailed information about how Schwab protects clients can be found in this online Schwab brochure.
