Schwab ETF OneSource offers commission-free ETFs from 15 leading providers: Aberdeen Standard Investments, ALPS, DWS Group, Direxion, Global X Funds, IndexIQ, Invesco ETFs, iShares ETFs, John Hancock Investment Management, J.P. Morgan Asset Management, PIMCO, State Street Global Advisors SPDR® ETFs, USCF, WisdomTree and Charles Schwab Investment Management.

Investors should consider carefully information contained in the prospectus or, if available, the summary prospectus, including investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. You can request a prospectus by calling Schwab at 1‐800‐435‐4000. Please read it carefully before investing.

Investment returns will fluctuate and are subject to market volatility, so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed or sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Unlike mutual funds, shares of ETFs are not individually redeemable directly with the ETF. Shares of ETFs are bought and sold at market price, which may be higher or lower than the net asset value (NAV).

Schwab receives payments from the third-party ETF sponsors or their affiliates participating in Schwab ETF OneSource for recordkeeping, shareholder services and other administrative services that Schwab provides to participating ETFs. Participating firms may also make additional payments for other ETF-related opportunities such as education and events and reporting. Schwab promotes Schwab ETF OneSource to its customers, and a portion of the fees paid to Schwab offsets some or all of Schwab's costs of promoting and administering Schwab ETF OneSource. Schwab does not receive payment to promote any particular ETF to its customers.

ETF sponsors or their affiliates participating in the Schwab ETF OneSource program generally pay fees to Schwab that are comprised of two components: (i) asset-based fees; and (ii) annual fixed program fees or one-time establishment fees.

At times, Schwab may enter into alternative fee arrangements with ETF sponsors or their affiliates for participation in ETF OneSource; these alternative arrangements might include a flat fee at the ETF or sponsor level. Regardless of how Schwab receives compensation from the ETF sponsor, the overall fee Schwab expects to receive from third party ETF sponsors for their participation in ETF OneSource or for ETF-related opportunities generally ranges from 0.04% to 0.08% per year. In addition, Schwab may waive commissions for certain ETFs at its own discretion from time to time, without payment of a separate fee by the ETF sponsor, and will allow these ETFs to participate in ETF OneSource if the ETFs meet Schwab’s internal objective criteria for inclusion. Regardless, all participating firms receive the same benefits, and the same potential conflicts exist regardless of fee structure.

Neither Schwab ETFs nor Charles Schwab Investment Management, Inc. pay a fee to Schwab for the Schwab ETFs to participate in the Schwab ETF OneSource program.

Schwab's use of the name or logo of any ETF sponsor or individual ETF in Schwab ETF OneSource promotional and informational materials prepared by Schwab is used under license. Schwab’s inclusion of a particular ETF in ETF OneSource should not be considered endorsement of any participating ETF or ETF sponsor or a recommendation of any security.
