My Email to Tom Bradley and John Tovar:

Dear Tom Bradley and John Tovar,

HCR Wealth Advisors, per the latest ADV filed on 10-31-2021 had $1.2B AUM. They custody with you. Recently the SEC fined and sanctioned them for not supervising reps. One rep stole $1.2M from a client. An RIA with $17M AUM was terminated from the Schwab platform because he logged on through the retail client portal rather than the adviser portal. When you terminated this RIA you notified every one of his clients.

You 2 claim to be advocates for the small advisers. So can you explain this double standard?

SEC fines Schwab $187M

This company is despicable. Parades around on a white horse as the protector when in fact they are the destroyer. They have one goal - strip investors bare.

SEC slams Schwab

Read today’s SEC action against Schwab. They were fined $187M for egregious behavior. They lied to their clients. Maybe they should be kicked off their own platform!!!

Aka David - just threw a rock at Goliath. He filed a lawsuit against Schwab and others . He used a phrase - “Silencing and Retaliation Scheme”. Schwab is a corporate bully out to destroy small RIA’

Broker Dealers seem quite casual, if not indifferent, to informing RIA clients that they have terminated the contract with their advisor. Almost like telling a motorist he left his car lights on. Broker Dealers refer to these individuals as account holders, while RIA's refer to them as clients. If you ask a compliance person at a Broker Dealer how the recipients of the notice of termination are likely to "feel" after receiving notice, they will show you that they have not given the matter much thought, and really don't care.
