Starting today, independent investment advisors who custody assets with Schwab Advisor Services can download the app to view their clients' account balances, positions and transactions, allowing them to easily tap into the real-time data they need from Schwab Advisor Center while on the go.

"This first version of the new Schwab Advisor Center app for iPhone includes the features that advisors told us they wanted most," said Steve Hirsch, vice president of institutional web services for Charles Schwab. "We have heard that the top priority is fast and convenient access to client account information so advisors can stay informed and on top of their business no matter where they are."

The mobile app is part of a broader effort to deliver Schwab Advisor Center data where and how advisors need it. The Schwab Advisor Center app for iPad is currently under development and will be available to advisors before the end of the year. Additionally, advisors' clients who want on the go access to their accounts can use Schwab's mobile apps for iPhone, iPad and Android, as well as Schwab's mobile website to keep up with their accounts and to access features like Schwab Mobile Deposit.

"Our app for the iPhone was well received in pilot, and we're listening closely to the feedback we get from advisors and will continue to make enhancements to the app as more clients begin to use it and identify other services they would like to access." Hirsch added.
