CEO and President Walt Bettinger commented, Our through clients eyes strategy helped build investor trust in Schwab and supported another year of outstanding growth for our company in 2012. Our individual client loyalty scores reached new highs during the year, and our client metrics ended strongly, with December core net new assets totaling a record $22.6 billion, 28% higher than the previous record set in March 2008. Core net new assets totaled $112.4 billion for 2012, up 37% over the prior year. We ended the year with a record $1.95 trillion in total client assets, up 16% over December 2011. We added 900,000 new brokerage accounts to our client base during 2012, and active brokerage accounts reached a record 8.8 million at year-end, up 3% year-over-year. In addition, we served 865,000 banking accounts and 1.6 million corporate retirement plan participants as of month-end December 2012, up 11% and 5%, respectively.
By continuing to challenge the status quo in investing services we believe that both our clients and the company win, Mr. Bettinger said. Our progress in completing and delivering a number of significant innovations in our client service capabilities remained on track throughout 2012. For example, our new index-based 401(k) offering has 41 companies committed to participate and more than 200 actively considering enrollment; our new independent branches were open in 12 locations by year-end; and our expanded mobile and tablet solutions are already being utilized by over half a million clients.
