Schwab aims to rejuvenate its customer base

The buying and selling of shares is one of several new investment programs coming to the firm’s platform, founder and chairman of the firm Charles Schwab told WSJ..

Fractional stocks offer a new way to entice young traders who can now avoid commission fees. Those without capital for more expensive stocks such as Amazon or Berkshire Hathaway Class A, which closed last week at $ 313,200 a share, will be able to invest in firms with possible buyback.

 Schwab is not the first company to try to offer partial exchange trading. Smaller companies like Stockpile, which was founded in 2010, provided this type of service for 99 cents. However, Schwab, which has about $ 3.72 trillion in client assets, is the first major online broker to offer fractional trading.. Other companies that offer partial trading are M1 Finance, Betterment and Stash.

It has not yet been announced when exactly the launch of the service will take place and whether fractional trades will have fees.

Earlier this month, Schwab cut all fees for US stocks, ETFs and options.. Brokerage competitors E-Trade and TD Ameritrade subsequently followed, also lowering their commission fees. Interactive brokers also followed suit.

«This move is complemented by a fee cut as it removes any remaining friction around single exchange trading.», – said JMP Securities managing director Devin Ryan.

Schwab shares gained 1.1% in the last auction.
