CEO Walt Bettinger commented, After a long period of progress masked by environmental headwinds, our standout financial performance in 2013 more clearly reflected the significant growth weve achieved with our through clients eyes strategy. Our contemporary full-service investing model helped drive further expansion of our client base, leading to $5.4 billion in net revenues and net income that exceeded $1 billion for the first time since 2008. We met our financial expectations for the year: revenue growth of 11% exceeded the rise in expenses by over 2 percentage points the high end of our target range; our pre-tax profit margin was consistent with our objective of at least 30%; and earnings per share reached $0.78, north of our mid-$0.70s goal.
Our 2013 client metrics demonstrate why focusing on investor needs remains the right strategy for Schwab, Mr. Bettinger continued. Core net new assets of $140.8 billion were up 25% over the prior year and represented a 7% annual growth rate. We ended the year with 9.1 million active brokerage accounts and 916,000 banking accounts, up 3% and 6%, respectively, over year-end 2012. Of the record $2.25 trillion in assets entrusted to us by clients as of December 31, 2013, approximately half are receiving some form of ongoing advisory service, with $946 billion under the guidance of an independent advisor and $155 billion in client assets enrolled in one of our retail advisory solutions, increases of 20% and 22%, respectively.
