Charles Schwab is seeking a compliance director for its futures and forex team, and the job post for the role offers clues to the financial services firm’s crypto ambitions.

The Block reported last month that Charles Schwab is currently exploring the launch of crypto brokerage, with sources saying at the time that the firm is looking into how it can offer crypto trading to customers via partnerships with industry companies. The idea is that such services would be white-labeled from a crypto industry partner as early as the end of 2021. 

The new job posting appears distinct from that potential business line, but it does involve some crypto aspects. A Google search for the role indicates that the earliest listing is dated April 1.
