Schwab Intelligent Portfolios ETF Lineup

Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are the basic building blocks of Schwab Intelligent Portfolios®, which includes 51 of the more than 3,000 ETFs in the marketplace. ETFs are selected based on a set of criteria that includes their ability to provide exposure to broad asset classes, low operating expense ratios, efficient trading characteristics, and close tracking to their targeted index. Most asset classes within Schwab Intelligent Portfolios include a primary ETF and a secondary ETF, which is used mainly for tax-loss harvesting purposes.

Schwab Intelligent Portfolios are designed to be low cost and range in weighted average annual ETF Operating Expense Ratios (OERs) at the portfolio level from 0.02% to 0.19%. Since Schwab Intelligent Portfolios charges no advisory fees, trading commissions or account service fees, considering OERs are an important part of keeping costs low for investors.
