Today, seven of these providers are adding new funds to Schwab’s commission-free online ETF program. Notably, PIMCO is doubling the amount of ETFs they offer with the addition of three multi-factor products.

“As we approach the five-year anniversary of ETF OneSource, we’re incredibly proud of the growth this program has achieved and that it continues to capture investor interest,” said Heather Fischer, vice president of ETF & mutual fund platforms and client solutions strategy at Charles Schwab. “According to our research, trading ETFs without commissions or other fees continues to grow in importance for investors, so we’re thrilled to continuously expand our selection of ETFs.
