Charles Schwab Index ETFs
Charles Schwab is well established as a provider of low-cost products and services for investors.
Here is a short list of Schwab's index ETFs for some equity asset classes that are useful for most investors:
| S&P 500:
| Total Stock Market:
| Small Value:
| Global Excluding US:
| Developed Markets, Large and Mid Cap:
| Developed Markets, Small Cap:
| Emerging Markets:
There are a few gaps in Schwab's lineup.
They don't offer an S&P 500, which probably doesn't really matter since most people would prefer the TSM, which provides similar performance and more diversification.
There is no Global Ex-US (also known as Total International), but you can simulate it with the three international ETFs shown.
And there is no Small Value, which many people consider a core asset class for their portfolio.
You can buy Schwab ETFs commission-free within a Schwab brokerage account, which is an extremely low-cost option.
