Schwab Pushes For New ETF Fees

News summary by MFWire's editors

Walt Bettinger and his team are working on a way to make marketing fees, no commissions, off of non-Schwab ETFs. Quiet meetings spearheaded by Charles Schwab[profile] have been taking place where the firm is trying to convince ETF providers to join a new network that will make ETFs commission-free, reports Reuters.

Sources knowledgeable of the talks told the wire service that providers will have to pay Schwab a marketing fee which they say is too high, thus making them reluctant to join.

According to Reuters, an ETF network could be a financial boon for Schwab since fees paid by ETF providers generate a source of steady revenue. While it is common in the mutual fund world for asset managers to pay a fee (known as 12b-1) to brokerages that sell and promote their funds, it is rare in the ETF market. Most brokerages market ETFs for free and make their money by charging investors a trading commission.

AdvisorShares' Noah Hamman said "this is the next area for price competition."

Schwab proposes that ETF providers would pay fees ranging from five to ten basis points.
