Schwab’s legacy of indexing


Charles R. Schwab launched the Schwab 1000 Index in 1991. The same year, Charles Schwab Investment Management launched the Schwab 1000 Index Fund, a low-cost mutual fund that aims to match the total return of the index. Then based on demand, a corresponding ETF was launched in 2017.
