Charles Schwab Biography and Net Worth

Chairman of Charles Schwab

Charles Schwab is an American investor and the founder of Charles Schwab Corporation, a leading financial services firm and a pioneer of the discount brokerage industry.

Founded in 1971 as First Commander Corporation, Schwab's company offered the perfect pairing of low prices and efficient executions. It was renamed Charles Schwab & Co. in 1973, and today, it’s the country’s largest publicly-traded investment firm, with over $4 trillion in client assets. 

Schwab is often credited with “democratizing” investments, having driven numerous innovations to help people improve their saving and investing. He challenged the industry status quo by doing away with commissions, markups and fees, and front-end loads, basing his business on discount per-trade fees.

Today, Charles Schwab Corp. provides full-service banking and investing to its clients and investors globally. Schwab has served as chairman since its founding, and he was CEO for most of the company’s history until he stepped down in 2008. 

Schwab is an active philanthropist as well. Together with his wife, he co-founded The Charles and Helen Schwab Foundation to support organizations in the areas of poverty prevention, education, health, and human services. He also served as chairman of the board for the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art for 10 years until 2018.

In 2008, President George W. Bush appointed Schwab chairman of the President's Advisory Council on Financial Literacy, an initiative that advised the president and the secretary of the treasury on methods to increase financial literacy. 

Schwab has also authored several best-selling books, including Invested: Changing Forever the Way Americans Invest; How to Be Your Own Stockbroker; Charles Schwab's Guide to Financial Independence; You're Fifty—Now What?; and It Pays to Talk, co-written with his daughter, Carrie Schwab-Pomerantz.

Schwab earned his B.A. in economics from Stanford University and his M.B.A from the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
