Why Schwab? It's all about you.

We have one mission: to help you reach your financial goals.

There's more than one way to achieve your financial goals.

Schwab isn't a one-size-fits-all because everyone has unique financial goals. Whether you're working towards retirement, saving for college or a house, or looking to invest in the market on your own, we have investing options that meet your needs on your terms.  

  • Trade investments on your own.

    Build, manage, and trade stocks in your portfolio with the latest innovative tools and our most advanced desktop platform, StreetSmart Edge®.

  • Let our robo-advisor do the work.

    Our robo-advisor, Schwab Intelligent Portfolios®, automates investing by building, managing, and even rebalancing your portfolio.

  • Work with a Schwab advisor.

    You have unique financial goals, and a Schwab Financial Consultant can work with you to build a custom financial plan.
