Despite the Fed`s diverging votes, Charles Schwab Corp. on Tuesday authorized the closure of the TD merger, and “Schwabitrade” looks less formidable than expected The integration of Schwab and TD Ameritrade`s business is expected to take place in the next 18 to 36 months, although plans have been underway since the acquisition was announced on November 25, 2019. Pending full integration, Schwab and TD Ameritrade will continue to operate separate dealer brokers to serve their respective clients. Until then, the products, services and delivery chains currently available by both companies will remain largely unchanged and customers should continue to call Schwab for the Schwab and TD Ameritrade account business for TD Ameritrade`s account business. For more information and FAQs for customers of both companies, see welcome.schwab.com. “If this merger is completed, it is very likely that they will eliminate [thousands] of TD Ameritrade employees,” Tim Welsh, President and CEO of Larkspur, Calif.-Council based on Nexus Strategy, said via email.

The revised IDA agreement will enter into force on the date of the merger. As part of the amendment to the IDA agreement, there will first be a period during which the amounts transferred to deposit-taking institutions will be made up exclusively of the money of TD Ameritrade`s subsidiary brokers` clients.
At the end of this first period, Schwab`s subsidiary brokers, including brokers who purchase them from TD Ameritrade, will be able to scan clients` money market deposit accounts with deposited institutions, subject to certain limits. As part of its review, the Fed assessed the relationship between TD Ameritrade and Schwab after the merger, including participation, the directors of several boards (called Interlocks directors) and a major deposit sweeping agreement.
