Custodian Relationships

We work with Charles Schwab and Fidelity to ensure our clients have a choice in custodian.


Mission Wealth is a member of both the SAN® and WAS® networks - both are custodial referral programs where Charles Schwab and Fidelity Financial Consultants have the ability to refer their clients to independent RIAs.

These referrals to firms (like Mission Wealth) typically occur when a Schwab or Fidelity client has reached complexity in their financial situation or is in need of a specific customization. Each custodian has a rigorous vetting program for firms to be added to their platform and Mission Wealth is proud to have been approved by both. We have been partnered with Charles Schwab since 2003 and Fidelity since 2010.

SAN® and WAS® Networks

One objective of the custodial referral networks is to offer an independent advice solution with no conflict of interest. This can be an ideal solution as the client is able to maintain their assets with the trusted custodian, but is also able to access fiduciary advice along with customization and personalized service from the RIA.
