Charles Schwab Broker Summary: Overview

Charles Schwab was a pioneer in discount brokerage, offering investors lower commission rates than conventional registered brokers in exchange for a more limited suite of service offerings. Though Schwab was relatively slow to become price-competitive in the online discount brokerage industry, the company now pursues a model that offers self-directed investors competitive rates while also offering a host of services and support for investors requiring more assistance.

Schwab also sponsors several investment products, including mutual funds and ETFs.
