CEO Walt Bettinger said, “Our contemporary full-service investing model continues to appeal to clients and prospects, and helped us achieve strong quarterly operating results in the face of sideways equity markets and continuing low interest rates. We gathered $37.0 billion of core net new assets, the highest second quarter in our history, and maintained a 6% annualized organic growth rate despite seasonal tax outflows in April. Clients opened 280,000 new brokerage accounts, up 16% year-over-year and another second quarter record. Total client assets were $2.54 trillion at quarter-end, up 6% from a year ago. Client assets under the guidance of a registered independent advisor or enrolled in one of our retail or other advisory solutions also rose 6% year-over-year, to $1.26 trillion. At month-end June, we were serving 9.6 million brokerage accounts, 1.0 million banking accounts, and 1.5 million retirement plan participants, up 4%, 6% and 10%, respectively, from the second quarter of 2014.”

“We continue to drive growth by leveraging our ‘through clients’ eyes’ strategy and our scale to build products and services aimed at making life better for investors,” Mr. Bettinger continued. “That scale is evident across our unique in-house combination of brokerage, asset management, and banking capabilities. Institutional Intelligent Portfolios is the latest example of an offering that draws from all these capabilities to create better solutions for our clients. In this case, independent advisors now have access to an automated investment management platform that enables them to reach new clients, scale their businesses, and complement the wealth management services and client experience that they already provide. Institutional Intelligent Portfolios launched on June 23rd; advisors are currently enrolling and customizing their programs. Schwab Intelligent Portfolios, our related automated investment service for retail clients, got off to a strong start after its release in the first quarter, and reached $3.0 billion in assets and over 39,000 accounts as of June 30th. In addition to launching these new offerings, we remain committed to expanding existing platforms in areas of strong client demand. We have broadened Schwab ETF OneSource to include over 200 commission-free ETFs as of month-end June. Investors can access a wide range of funds from 13 providers and 66 Morningstar categories with zero online commissions.”

CFO Joe Martinetto commented, “We delivered solid financial performance in the second quarter, as our diversified revenue streams helped us work through a mixed bag of environmental drivers and we stayed the course on our planned spending. Interest rates picked up at least slightly across the yield curve during the quarter, which helped limit pressure on our net interest margin. In addition, our strong asset gathering fueled sustained growth in interest-earning assets. As a result, net interest revenue grew by 9% year-over-year and set a new quarterly record. Equity market returns were in positive territory for much of the second quarter but retreated as June came to a close. Even with limited help from market valuations, asset management and administration fees grew 6% and set another quarterly record due to the overall effectiveness of our asset gathering, a bit of rate-related help on net money market fund revenues, and ongoing client demand for our advisory solutions. While client trading activity remained muted for much of the quarter, which resulted in a 4% decline in trading revenue, the strength of our non-trading revenues yielded 6% overall revenue growth from a year ago. Our 4% increase in total expenses was right in line with our expectations and helped us deliver a 9% increase in earnings and a pre-tax profit margin of 36.2%. We are managing the levers under our control to ensure flexibility across a range of environmental conditions and protect our ability to drive profitable growth.”

Mr. Martinetto concluded, “We continue to maintain a healthy balance sheet while taking advantage of our growing capital base to more effectively monetize client cash balances. This quarter we completed a bulk transfer of sweep balances from money market funds to Schwab Bank totaling approximately $650 million. As we closed out the first half of 2015, our preliminary consolidated Tier 1 Leverage ratio was 6.9%.”
