Public Company Information:
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Schwab announced today that starting on February 1, 2015, it will add 18 more ETFs to Schwab ETF OneSource, the program that offers investors the most commission-free* ETFs anywhere in the industry. Next week, investors will be able to access 198 ETFs covering 64 Morningstar Categories for $0 online trade commissions. Schwab does not have any enrollment requirements or charge early redemption fees for the ETFs in the program – two key differentiators for investors comparing similar commission-free ETF programs.
“Nearly two years and two hundred commission-free ETFs after launching Schwab ETF OneSource, investors are embracing the choice and value it offers,” said Heather Fischer, Vice President of ETF Platform Management at Charles Schwab. “The traction we’ve been able to achieve in a relatively short period speaks volumes about the importance of cost when it comes to selecting an ETF, and we are excited to be able to continue to expand this program to meet investor demand.”
Schwab ETF OneSource has $38 billion in assets under management as of December 31, 2014. Flows into ETFs in the program were over $10 billion in 2014, representing 43 percent of the total ETF flows at Schwab.
Schwab ETF OneSource includes funds from 13 leading providers – ALPS Advisors, Inc., Direxion Investments, ETF Securities, Global X Management Company, LLC, Guggenheim Investments, IndexIQ, PIMCO, PowerShares, ProShares, State Street SPDR®, United States Commodity Funds, WisdomTree and Charles Schwab Investment Management.
The new additions to Schwab ETF OneSource complement the current line-up by providing commission-free access to momentum ETFs, additional single countries ETFs, a Bullish Dollar ETF and non-traditional Bond ETFs, to name a few.
