Was just browsing and reading these threads -

What do you mean -- Admiral index funds free - ?

I meant without trading fees, not counting the ERs which are the same as the ETFs. As far as I know very few VG competitors have VG Admiral shares of any kind, let alone the full stable.

Schwab is today's Vanguard

Vanguard will die soon or may be already in coma


I think you are indeed confused. Costs are important when we are talking 60, 80, or 100bp vs. 5. When it's 5 vs. 3bp, cost becomes fairly irrelevant.

Given this wiki is 6 year old and not updated, this will mis-lead new folks like myself. Please help review this ?

Schwab ETFs are much cheaper vs Vanguard.

Bogleheads needs to open up beyond Jack Bogle and Vanguard and test latest market leaders ...I have no affiliation with Schwab as I'm a AT&T Enginner, and only understand 0 or 1, not ETFs vs Mutual Funds...

The wiki has a list: Investment management company ("See also")

Sure, I took a crack at it: Charles Schwab

Like you, I'm an engineer but work in the analog world. I understand 0.000 and 1.000. :)

Can someone familiar with Schwab give this a good look? Comments / questions / corrections are welcome. Wiki editors should edit the page directly.

===============
To explain further, the content of the wiki depends on the interest and experience of its editors. I don't invest with Schwab, so I don't look at those pages in depth. Upon request, certainly.

Members who want to see updated info regarding the other Investment management companies are welcome to become editors and update those pages yourself. You can become an editor by posting in Join the Wiki!, or see the instructions at the bottom of the wiki home page.
To some, the glass is half full. To others, the glass is half empty. To an engineer, it's twice the size it needs to be.
