“As we pursue our strategy of building a better investment firm ‘through clients’ eyes’, we are succeeding in driving growth in both our client base and stockholder value,” Mr. Bettinger continued. “Our core net new assets of nearly $43 billion were 97% higher than a year ago and the highest in Schwab history for a summer quarter; our year-to-date core net new assets of $108.8 billion represent an annualized growth rate of approximately 7.4%. In addition, we ended September with 9.0 million active brokerage accounts and 930,000 banking accounts, up 3% and 10%, respectively, over the third quarter of 2012. While total corporate retirement plan participants declined in keeping with our announced consolidation of plan recordkeeping technology platforms, we are seeing strong interest in our new index-based 401(k) offering. Meanwhile, introduction of our groundbreaking, innovative ETF 401(k) Plan solution is pending resolution of a final regulatory issue.”Mr. Bettinger noted, “These client results supported double-digit percentage increases in all three of our main revenue sources and 15% overall revenue growth versus the year-ago quarter. Even with the continued headwind created by an interest rate environment that remains at historic lows, our third quarter revenues surpassed all our prior quarterly results save the extraordinary spike we experienced at the height of the internet bubble.”
