The Schwab Franchise is your chance to take control of your success like never before. With our unique franchise ownership model, Schwab Independent Branch Leaders leverage the power of Schwab's brand to gather assets, the strength of Schwab's infrastructure to efficiently operate their business and the integrity of the Schwab promise to always keep their clients' interests first.
Consider this, in 2014, 56% of Schwab's Independent Branches (13 franchises) surpassed $20 million in net new assets (new franchise results may differ)1. And, Independent Branch Leaders are sole practitioners with an average of 1-2 employees2.
