Charles Schwab witnessed encouraging growth in client assets and brokerage accounts, showcasing its ability to attract and retain investors. In November 2023, total client assets reached an impressive $8.18 trillion, bolstered by $19.2 billion in net new assets and a substantial $508 billion in gains attributed to the stock market rally.

The company has grappled with challenges in its banking segment, experiencing a consistent decline in bank account deposits since June 2022. From $155.6 billion in June to $93.7 billion in November, the trend highlighted a noteworthy area of concern.

As interest rates potentially ease in the coming months, there could be a reversal in the transaction cash activity. This should benefit Charles Schwab’s net interest revenue.
