Former Schwab Exec to Lead Fidelity Institutional Platform Business

Fidelity Investments named Charles Goldman, former executive vice president and head of Schwab Institutional, as president of Institutional Platforms for Fidelity Institutional Products Group.

In this role, Goldman will be responsible for developing and implementing the strategic plan for Fidelity’s new Institutional Platform business, which comprises Fidelity Institutional Wealth Services, National Financial, and Fidelity Family Office Services, according to a Fidelity release. He also will have management responsibility for HybridOne, an offering designed to help firms and advisers manage their commission- and fee-based business, as well as a new international clearing initiative (see Fidelity’s HybridOne Manages Both Commission and Fee Business.)

Goldman will join Fidelity in early 2009 and report to Michael K. Clark, president of Fidelity Institutional Products Group, Fidelity said.
