Schwab Moving Trade Commissions to ZERO

We are pleased to announce that on Tuesday, October 1, 2019, Charles Schwab will be eliminating trade commissions for stocks and ETF’s listed on U.S. or Canadian exchanges across all mobile and web trading channels.  This change will take place starting on October 7, 2019.  The move to zero commissions means lower costs, improved market access, and greater flexibility for all our valued clients with a Charles Schwab account.

While this change does not affect how LifePro manages client accounts, it is a material benefit to our investors with a Charles Schwab account.  The move to zero trading commissions removes a key layer of investment management costs, that will allow our clients to capture a greater portion of their overall investment return after fees. 

Going forward, the elimination of trade costs will not impact how we actively manage client portfolios. The lower trading costs will simply add to the overall value that an actively managed investment process can offer client portfolios. LifePro Asset Management remains focused on investing in companies that are positioned to experience a rate of long-term sales growth that is over and above the economic and sector growth rate, command operational excellence and offer clients an attractive growth adjusted valuation.
