  • Core net new assets brought to the company by new and existing clients totaled $43.3 billion. Net new assets excluding mutual fund clearing totaled $43.1 billion.
  • Total client assets were $7.13 trillion as of month-end August, down 9% from August 2021 and down 2% compared to July 2022.
  • Average margin balances were $72.9 billion in August, down 10% from August 2021 and up 1% compared to July 2022.

CFO Peter Crawford commented, “Schwab’s business momentum remained strong in August, with $43 billion in core net new assets, 332 thousand new accounts, and 5.6 million daily average trades. We did see a pick-up in so-called client cash sorting behavior during the month, consistent with our expectations that a faster rise in the Fed Funds rate could prompt an increase in the pace of sorting. That being said, we continue to expect that the total amount of overall sorting activity shouldn’t be any higher this cycle than during the prior stretch of rising rates – and we still think it could even be a bit lower due to the factors discussed at our Summer Business Update back in July. Additionally, our ongoing success with clients and stronger net interest margin currently have the company’s third quarter revenues on track to grow by 18% to 19% versus the prior year.

As clients move some of their cash to purchased money funds and fixed income, it increases our capital levels – freeing up capital which we can return to stockholders through higher common dividends, preferred redemptions, and/or stock buybacks. Our binding constraint of course is our consolidated Tier 1 Leverage Ratio. For many years, our operating objective for Tier 1 Leverage has been 6.75%-7.00%. Recently, however, we made the decision to lower that operating objective by 25 basis points to 6.50%-6.75%. This lower range reflects the increased maturity of our capital planning processes, the strength and resilience of our balance sheet, and the positive results from our inaugural CCAR submission. We’ll discuss the implications of this change on our near-term capital activities at the upcoming Fall Business Update in October.”

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements relating to Schwab’s business momentum and client success; client cash sorting; net interest margin; expected third quarter revenue growth; capital levels; returning excess capital to stockholders; Tier 1 Leverage Ratio operating objective; and balance sheet strength. These forward-looking statements reflect management’s expectations as of the date hereof. Achievement of these expectations and objectives is subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the expressed expectations.
