Schwab Expands Fundamental Index Line-up With Introduction Of Six Exchange-Traded Funds

Schwab’s newest ETFs will deliver many of the key benefits of ETF investing in general, including diversification, intra-day trading and transparency, with operating expense ratios that are priced competitively relative to others using a fundamental approach. All six ETFs will be added to Schwab ETF OneSource™ — the ETF platform that gives investors and advisors access to the most commission-free ETFs anywhere in the industry 2 — on the first day of trading. The new ETFs are as follows:

  • Schwab Fundamental U.S. Broad Market Index ETF (FNDB) – Seeks to track the Russell Fundamental U.S. Index; OER – 0.32%
  • Schwab Fundamental U.S. Large Company Index ETF (FNDX) – Seeks to track the Russell Fundamental U.S. Large Company Index; OER – 0.32%
  • Schwab Fundamental U.S. Small Company Index ETF (FNDA) – Seeks to track the Russell Fundamental U.S Small Company Index; OER – 0.32%
  • Schwab Fundamental International Large Company Index ETF (FNDF) – Seeks to track the Russell Fundamental Developed ex-U.S. Large Company Index; OER – 0.32%
  • Schwab Fundamental International Small Company Index ETF (FNDC) – Seeks to track the Russell Fundamental Developed ex-U.S. Small Company Index; OER – 0.46%
  • Schwab Fundamental Emerging Markets Large Company Index ETF (FNDE) – Seeks to track the Russell Fundamental Emerging Markets Large Company Index; OER – 0.46%

Appetite Among RIAs

Like its five Fundamental Index mutual fund counterparts, Schwab expects the new Fundamental Index ETFs will be embraced first by Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs). These advisors have already shown an avid interest in understanding how Fundamental Index strategies compare to a market-cap index approach. This year alone, more than 900 RIAs have attended three Schwab-hosted special events aimed at educating advisors about the two forms of index strategies, and three white papers for RIAs have been distributed by Schwab. Seven additional regional events for advisors on this topic are scheduled to take place before year-end.
