Schwab ETF OneSource expands to offer more than 120 commission-free ETFs

Charles Schwab has added 16 new ETFs to Schwab ETF OneSource since its debut. The OneSoure platform gives investors and advisors access to the most commission-free ETFs anywhere in the industry.

Schwab clients can now buy and sell 121 ETFs with USD0 online trade commissions – a 15% increase from the 105 ETFs first offered when Schwab ETF OneSource was launched in February.

Schwab ETF OneSource includes funds from six leading providers – State Street SPDR® ETFs, Guggenheim Investments, PowerShares, ETF Securities, United States Commodity Funds, and Charles Schwab Investment Management.

The 16 new ETFs include five from Guggenheim, five from SPDR ETFs and six from Charles Schwab Investment Management. The newest additions to Schwab ETF OneSource expand the range of asset categories available to now include asset allocation, long-term corporate bond, and international asset-income ETFs.

“With the most commission-free ETFs and the broadest category coverage in the industry, Schwab ETF OneSource gives investors and advisors unsurpassed choice when it comes to building diversified commission-free ETF portfolios,” says Beth Flynn, vice president of ETF platform management at Charles Schwab. “We’re pleased to be adding to the range of funds and asset categories that we can offer commission-free, and continue to believe that this is just the beginning.”

Average flows into the ETFs featured on Schwab ETF OneSource have more than doubled from pre-launch levels2. While the ETFs offered on Schwab ETF OneSource represent just eight percent of the total number of ETFs available through Schwab, they account for nearly half of all positive ETF flows at Schwab since the February launch of ETF OneSource. In addition, more than 50 percent of ETF flows from Registered Investment Advisors who custody client assets at Schwab are now going into OneSource ETFs.

“Costs matter to investors, and the flows we’ve seen since the debut of Schwab ETF OneSource tell us that investors place value on the ability to buy and sell ETFs commission-free without incurring short-term redemption fees,” says Flynn.

Schwab’s research underscores that cost and fees continue to be critical factors for investors making ETF buying decisions. According to the 2013 ETF Investor Study by Charles Schwab, released earlier this month, the ability to trade ETFs commission-free is most or very important to 45 percent of investors. Notably, the study also highlighted the importance of another key fact about Schwab ETF OneSource – investors are not charged any early redemption fees or surprised with other costs for selling an ETF shortly after buying it. According to the study, clarity about a fund’s redemption fees or other hidden fees is considered the number one cost factor when making ETF buying decisions, with 71 percent saying it is extremely important.
