Schwab has a minimum requirement of $1,000 for most of its basic investment and retirement accounts, though a Schwab International account carries a higher $25,000 minimum. Investors willing to commit a certain level of trading activity (currently 36 trades per year) have the same minimums, but access to a different set of investment analysis tools.
