Charles Schwab Corp was incorporated in Delaware in 1986. The Company, through its subsidiaries, is engaged in securities brokerage, banking and related financial services. It provides financial services to individuals and institutional clients through two segments namely Investor Services and Advisor Services. The Investor Services segment provides retail brokerage and banking services to individual investors, retirement plan services and corporate brokerage services. The Advisor Services segment provides custodial, trading, and support services to independent investment advisors (IAs) and retirement business services to independent retirement plan advisors and recordkeepers whose plan assets are held at Schwab Bank. The Investor Services segment provides retail brokerage and banking services to individual investors. Through the Advisor Services segment, it provides custodial, trading, and support services to IAs. To attract and serve IAs, it has a dedicated sales force and service teams assigned to meet their needs. IAs who custody client accounts at Schwab may use proprietary software that provides them with up-to-date client account information, as well as trading capabilities.

Guru Investment Theses on Charles Schwab Corp

Jerome Dodson Comments on Charles Schwab - Jul 26, 2016

Charles Schwab (NYSE:SCHW), the San Francisco–based bank and brokerage firm, saw its stock drop 9.7% from $28.02 to $25.31, for a loss of 30 basis points. The stock slid because investors pushed back their expectations for a rise in interest rates. At the beginning of the quarter, the market assigned a less than 50% probability that the Fed Funds rate would remain unchanged in the 0.25%-0.50% range by the end of 2016. In late June (on the heels of the Brexit news), this probability shot up to almost 90%. This matters for Schwab, because low rates crimp the company’s ability to profit from its bank assets and money market funds. We’re holding our Schwab position, despite this expected delay in an interest rate hike, because we think the company’s long-term prospects are terrific.

Ruane Cunniff Comments on Charles Schwab - Jul 13, 2016

Charles Schwab (NYSE:SCHW) pioneered the discount brokerage business in the mid-1970s and has remained an innovator in the investment services industry ever since. It built the well-known OneSource marketplace to provide individual investors access to thousands of no-load mutual funds and was among the first to provide individual investors with an online interface. The success of its investor-friendly strategy is evidenced by a tripling of the company’s client assets from $870 billion in 2000 to more than $2.5 trillion at year-end 2015. This makes Schwab the largest publicly-traded investment services firm in the U.S., ahead of all other discount brokers as well as all the wirehouses. We believe Schwab will continue to attract new brokerage accounts and client assets.

Specifically, we believe that the trend towards passive investment products and toward automated investment advice represents more opportunity than risk for the company. Traditional wirehouses still hold more than $10 trillion in client assets and likely will be market share donors for years to come. Schwab also holds many billions of dollars in client cash deposits, on which it earns a spread that tends to rise when interest rates rise. Any increase in short-term interest rates would provide significant earnings to Schwab, and thus upside to our investment, though we are not counting on it.

Baron Funds Comments on Charles Schwab Corp - Jun 01, 2016

We are also investors in The Charles Schwab Corp. (NYSE:SCHW), a premier discount brokerage firm offering securities brokerage and other financial services to individual investors and independent financial advisors. We have owned this company since 1992, when the stock was trading at a split adjusted price of around $1 per share. Today, it trades at more than 30 times that amount. Despite this impressive growth, we feel the company still has many opportunities ahead. Management’s emphasis on earning customer trust has made it, in our view, a sterling brand. We believe its premium brand and superior services will allow Schwab to continue winning share in its core business. Additionally, the Investor Services division has broadened its offerings to include investment management and advice. Its recently released product, Schwab Intelligent Portfolio, manages a client’s assets for no additional cost by utilizing proprietary product and the Schwab bank. We believe this complimentary service will be difficult for rivals to match and will create sticky and valuable customer relationships.

Baron Partners Fund Commentary on The Charles Schwab Corp - May 09, 2016

Shares of The Charles Schwab Corp., (NYSE:SCHW) an investment brokerage firm, declined in the first quarter due to the extreme downward pressure on the equity markets to start the year as a result of signs of a slowing Chinese economy and falling energy prices. Higher market volatility led to a decline in trading activity. Finally, shares were pressured by investor concerns that interest rate hikes will be paused (or reversed), causing net interest margins to remain low and money market fee waivers to persist. We believe Schwab will continue to experience growth in accounts as brokers leave traditional wirehouses. (Michael Baron)

Baron Funds Comments on The Charles Schwab Corp - Apr 26, 2016

Shares of brokerage firm The Charles Schwab Corp. (NYSE:SCHW) declined as a result of the cyclical challenges to its earnings caused by lower equity market indexes and lower long-term interest rates. Lower equity markets result in lower asset-based fees to Schwab, and lower interest rates result in a lower net interest margin and the prospect of its money market fee waivers persisting for a longer period. Higher equity market volatility also resulted in a decline in trading activity by its clients.

David Rolfe Comments on Charles Schwab - Apr 15, 2016

Charles Schwab (NYSE:SCHW)



As our conviction in M&T Bank waned, conviction built in another previously held financial, Charles Schwab. We previously held Schwab, ultimately selling the stock for valuation reasons in late 2013, after the stock got well ahead of what we thought were solid fundamentals. Valuation was the driving factor for the sell approximately two years ago, and valuation was the driving factor for this most recent purchase. In other words, little has changed from a fundamental point of view. Schwab has maintained their low-cost leadership (per dollar of platform assets) by leveraging their independent open-architecture asset gathering platform, and scaling over $2.3 trillion in client assets across decades of technology investments. Schwab’s low- cost of servicing allows them to pass on lower fees to advisors and clients, which is a key advantage, particularly in the highly commoditized financial services industry. While Charles Schwab’s capital intensity has increased over the past several years, they continue to maintain industry-leading pretax profit margins. We expect Schwab to continue gathering assets at a mid-single digit organic growth rate, combined with continued expense leverage, and only modest help from the interest rate environment.

Baron Funds Comments on The Charles Schwab Corp - Jan 26, 2016

Shares of The Charles Schwab Corp. (NYSE:SCHW), the discount brokerage firm, benefited from the dual tailwinds of rising interest rates and rising equity markets. Higher interest rates benefit Schwab both by driving up its net interest revenue and also by leading to reductions in waivers on its money market products. Higher equity markets result in higher revenues from its products, such as mutual funds, that charge fees based on underlying asset levels. Trading volume and the associated trading fees also generally increase in rising equity markets. Schwab also continues to benefit from the ongoing trend of investment advisors leaving large wirehouses to become independent advisors, many of whom conduct their business through Schwab.

Baron Funds Comments on Charles Schwab Corp. - Nov 13, 2015

We have purchased an initial position in the shares of The Charles Schwab Corp. (NYSE:SCHW) In business for over 40 years, Schwab has become a trusted platform to independent registered investment advisors (RIAs) and individual investors alike. We believe Schwab is a structural share gainer in assets under management as advisors continue to migrate away from bulge bracket brokerage firms and wirehouses and find Schwab’s integrated custody, trading, portfolio management, and other investment advisory services uniquely suitable. We think profit margins have further room to improve as the company has been investing aggressively for growth and should start to realize the benefits of leverage and scale over the next few years.

Baron Funds Comments on The Charles Schwab Corp - Oct 24, 2014

Shares of brokerage firm The Charles Schwab Corp. (SCHW) increased in the third quarter. The company indicated at its biannual investor meeting that earnings should approach the high end of initial guidance. Additionally, the company announced plans to return more cash to shareholders through dividends and buybacks. We believe Schwab is well positioned from a regulatory standpoint and has less exposure to trading commissions than its peers. It has been experiencing consistent and sustained growth in accounts as brokers leave traditional wirehouses. (Michael Baron)

The Fund’s investments in alternative investment money manager The Carlyle Group (CG), and financial intermediary The Charles Schwab Corp. (SCHW), are benefiting from strong performance of equities since the financial panic, which had resulted in increased investor interest in that asset class.
