This material is intended for informational purposes only and should not be considered a personalized recommendation or investment advice. Investors should review investment strategies for their own particular situations before making any investment decisions.

Investors should consider carefully information contained in the prospectus or, if available, the summary prospectus, including investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. You can request a prospectus by calling Schwab at 800‐435‐4000. Please read it carefully before investing.

Investing involves risks, including the loss of principal invested. Small-cap funds are subject to greater volatility than those in other asset categories. International investments are subject to additional risks, such as currency fluctuation, geopolitical risk, and the potential for illiquid markets.

Diversification and asset allocation strategies do not ensure a profit and do not protect against losses in declining markets.
