Charles Schwab Corp. said it will take a $200 million charge in the second quarter related to a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission probe of its robo-adviser platform.

The compliance inquiry relates to past disclosures around the firm’s Schwab Intelligent Portfolios product, according to a regulatory filing Friday. The company said it’s been cooperating with the SEC and its ultimate liability may differ from the amount it’s earmarking now.
