These are the most common getting started forms. We have prefilled sections with the common information and highlighted the remaining sections for you. After printing, reviewing, filling out, and signing the form, you can upload the whole thing to our secure ShareFile client portal here. In doing so, you are either requesting that we open or continue an advisory relationship.
If you are already a client of Charles Schwab, instead of sending the form to us, you have the option of uploading your form directly to Schwab via the “Upload Document” link in the message center of your Schwab.com login here.
Fund or Transfer Accounts
If you already have investment accounts hosted somewhere else, you can fund your Schwab accounts using a transfer. The instructions for transferring an account to either a regular Schwab account or a Schwab Institutional Intelligent Portfolios with Marotta Wealth Management are here: Transfer an Existing Account to a Schwab Account with Marotta Wealth Management.
If you have an employer sponsored account such as a 401(k), you may be able to rollover the assets via the instructions How to Rollover Your 401(k) into a Schwab Institutional Intelligent Portfolio with Marotta Wealth Management.
If you are just getting started with investing or have additional assets you’d like to contribute to your accounts, you can fund your account by using one of the following options (each is a link to their own instructions):
- Fund Your Account with a Check
- Move Funds Between Your Bank Account and Your Schwab Account
- Set Up Direct Deposit
