CEO Walt Bettinger said, “Today’s Schwab is a full-service investment firm capable of helping all types of investors plan for and build their financial futures, with over $2 trillion in client assets – a total that has grown by a compound annual rate of 10% over the past five years. A record $1 trillion of those assets are currently enrolled in some form of ongoing advice, reflecting a decades-long evolution at Schwab beyond our discount-brokerage roots. We’ve made notable progress, ending the third quarter of 2013 with $145 billion in client assets enrolled in one of our 8 retail advisory offers, as well as $891 billion under the guidance of independent advisors, representing year-over-year increases of 17% each. Our work on this front continues, as we provide an alternative to the traditional Wall Street model by offering sophisticated, needs-based approaches designed to enable today’s investors to get the help that’s right for them.”
