Charles R. Schwab

The Charles Schwab Corporation

Speaker Bio

Charles (“Chuck”) R. Schwab was born in Sacramento, California. He earned a bachelor of arts degree in economics from Stanford University and a master of business administration degree from Stanford Graduate School of Business. He started the San Francisco–based Charles Schwab Corporation in 1971 as a traditional brokerage company, and became a pioneer in the discount brokerage business with the deregulation of commissions in 1975.

Often credited with “democratizing” investment, Chuck Schwab has driven countless innovations in the investment services industry designed to help individuals make the most of saving and investing, including 24/7 access to services, the one-stop mutual fund supermarket providing access to thousands of no-load, no-transaction-fee mutual funds, custodial services for independent registered investment advisers, online trading, integrated banking and brokerage services, and many others.

He has been Chairman of The Charles Schwab Corporation since its inception and has served as CEO for most of its history until October 2008. He is also Chairman of Charles Schwab Bank. Along with his wife, Helen, he also supports entrepreneurial organizations working in education, poverty prevention, human services, and health. He also served for 10 years as Chairman of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
