SAN FRANCISCO -- November 28, 2012

Charles Schwab today launched an enhanced On Investing app for the iPad®-- the
latest example of the firm’s commitment to provide insightful, actionable and
sharable investing and personal finance information in the various places
people want to receive it. In addition to articles from Schwab’s popular On
Investing magazine, investors can now get Schwab’s latest research, expert
perspectives and investment guidance all in one place and at no cost. The new
app also includes customizable tools that allow investors to save favorites,
make annotations, and share content via email or social networks, all right on
the iPad.

“We know that investors want expert, actionable insights, and they want the
ability to quickly and easily apply those insights to their investment
decisions, even when they are on the go,” said Jonathan Craig, executive vice
president and chief marketing officer for Charles Schwab. “Our goal was to
create a financial publication app that informs investors and allows them to
share content, but we also wanted to provide a space for people to collect
ideas and create reminders, so they can then take appropriate action toward
reaching their financial goals.”

Tablets are quickly becoming investors’ device of preference for reading,
doing research, watching videos and sharing content. Schwab research shows
that in addition to consuming and sharing content, investors want a
customizable experience that delivers investment ideas and guidance with the
ability to quickly and easily take action.

The enhanced On Investing app for iPad aims to meet these needs by allowing
investors to read new articles across a range of investing topics, access
Schwab experts’ lists of top picks for mutual funds and ETFs, and review
Schwab’s outlook on equity sector performance to help manage and adjust their
portfolios. They can save and annotate relevant articles, videos and items of
interest, as well as share ideas, opinions and articles. Investors can also
arrange and organize their saved items within their personal collection space,
create reminders and follow checklists to stay on top of their next steps.

Once investors are ready to take action, the On Investing app provides
seamless access to Schwab Mobile Bank and Brokerage apps, which allow clients
to deposit checks remotely, transfer balances between Schwab Bank and Schwab
brokerage accounts, place trades in brokerage accounts, and pay bills using
Schwab Bank Bill Pay™ on their mobile devices. Clients can view balances and
account activity for Schwab Bank and brokerage accounts, Schwab Global
Accounts, OptionsXpress balances, Schwab 529 College Savings Plans, and
Schwab-administered 401(k) and stock option plans. Schwab mobile apps also
allow clients to tap into market information with real-time access to quotes,
charts and watch lists. The On Investing app complements Schwab’s current
mobile offering by providing convenient access to information investors need
to make informed decisions about their finances.

The On Investing app is available here.
