Fidelity hits staggering $12.6 trillion in 2023, bids adieu to headhunted retail chief, beats Schwab's performance -- not least because it doesn't own a bank -- and sees Maggie Serravalli's star shine

Retail was Fido's weakest division with 3% growth and its chief departed; it's B2B units -- 401K and custody/clearing -- jumped 6% each; Serravalli now serves as the company’s chief administrative officer.
