Schwab Reports Second Quarter Results

“We expanded our lineup of advised solutions during the second quarter by adding Thomas Partners’ dividend growth strategy to our offerings for retail and advisor-guided clients,” Mr. Bettinger said. “Our progress on other key client initiatives remains in line with expectations as we move into the middle of 2013. The Schwab ETF OneSource platform, which offers commission-free access to 105 ETFs from Schwab and 5 other providers, has already grown by approximately $3 billion since its launch in February. Also during the second quarter, we continued to build client awareness of optionsXpress’ innovative options and futures capabilities by announcing the Trading Patterns tool, which adds the ability to view the most popular underlying and option symbols being traded to a lineup that already includes the Idea Hub and Walk Limit tools. Additionally, we enhanced our platform for independent advisors through Schwab OpenView MarketSquare , a venue for the advisor community to rate and discuss industry vendors, and we announced a new advisor lookup tool, which will enable individuals to search for local advisors through Schwab.”

Mr. Bettinger added, “Overall, our continued success in serving investor needs enabled the company to produce another quarter of combined strength in business growth and financial performance. We ended June with $2.05 trillion in total client assets, up 14% year-over-year, and our client base grew to 9.0 million active brokerage accounts, 910,000 banking accounts, and 1.6 million corporate retirement plan participants, up 3%, 11%, and 5%, respectively. At the same time, we produced sequential improvement in all three of our main revenue sources, expanded total revenue by 4% over the first quarter of 2013, and delivered a 30.8% pre-tax profit margin. We continue to believe our strong business momentum, combined with our operating and expense discipline, will yield increasing operating leverage during the rest of 2013 and into 2014.”
