CEO Walt Bettinger said, “Over the past quarter, our Virtuous Cycle, driven by our “Through Clients’ Eyes” strategy, continued to attract client accounts and assets at a robust pace. The equity markets gathered momentum during the quarter, with the S&P 500 rising 21% from the December correction and posting its best first quarter since 1998. At the same time, investors faced a mixed geopolitical and economic landscape, including international trade negotiations, the evolving Brexit debate, and a potential slowing in Fed rate hikes. While we believe that this environment impacted investor sentiment and activity, demand for help and support from Schwab remained strong. New brokerage accounts totaled 386,000 during the quarter and client account openings have now exceeded 100,000 for 28 consecutive months. In addition, clients entrusted us with total core net new assets of $51.7 billion for the quarter, representing a 6% annualized growth rate, consistent with our long-term average and a noteworthy start to 2019, particularly given the unsettled environment. Total client assets reached a record $3.59 trillion at month-end March, up 8% year-over-year.”

“We remain steadfast in our ‘no-trade offs’ approach to serving clients, diligently seeking to offer straightforward and transparent products and services that provide investors with greater choice and value,” Mr. Bettinger continued. “Recently, we marked the sixth anniversary of Schwab ETF OneSourceTM, already one of the largest commission-free exchange-traded fund programs in the industry, by doubling its lineup to 500 ETFs covering 79 Morningstar® categories. Client assets held in program ETFs have grown at a compound annual rate of approximately 50% since inception, reaching $180.9 billion at quarter end. In addition, as part of our ongoing efforts to provide clients with the help and advice needed to pursue their investing goals, we recently replaced Schwab Intelligent AdvisoryTM with Schwab Intelligent Portfolios PremiumTM. This solution combines automated investing with guidance from a certified planning
