Start with equity, then grow from there.

We're more than just a group of friendly people—we're a group of friendly AND knowledgeable people who combine human expertise, smart technology, and education to help you:

  • Get the most from your equity awards
  • Organize your finances
  • Create a financial plan
  • Build a foundation for your financial goals

With Schwab, you'll have access to a lot of benefits.

Now that you have a Schwab account, let's make the most of it. 

If you're a U.S. resident, your Schwab brokerage account is considered "fully featured," which allows you to use it to purchase other assets. If you're a non U.S. resident, you may be eligible to upgrade to a fully featured account. Speak with a dedicated specialist to learn how to upgrade your account.

    So what is equity and what do I do with it?

    Stock awards are an integral part of your financial picture that can help you achieve your financial goals. Take a moment to explore our Knowledge Center. You'll find tutorials and valuable information on vesting and other equity-related topics. Please note, not all products, services, investments, or account features are available in all countries or with Limited Purpose accounts.

    Make a plan and stick to it.

    When you have a plan, it can help you reach your goals. That financial plan can mean the difference between success and failure. Whether you have a little to invest, or a lot, you can take control of your financial future to help you reach your goals.
