A couple years ago we had to remove our alternative investments from our Schwab accounts. I moved them to a different custodian, Millennium Trust. I am looking for a new custodian. Am I understanding correctly that Schwab can not hold Alternative Investments? If so, can you provide me a fee schedule?

I forwarded your question to Schwab.
