Schwab's focus on offering high-quality services at competitive rates is nothing new for this company. Like most financial service companies, Schwab has tried to grow its offerings in proprietary investment products and wealth management/advisory services. Schwab does not target active traders to the same extent as other online brokers, and it offers comparatively less competitive platforms and pricing to the most active of investors.
