Charles Schwab is attracting a slew of new assets, and daily average trades are rising. New and established clients brought the company $6 billion of net new assets in January, according to its monthly market activity report. Total client assets rose 27% from a year earlier, to $1.401 trillion, but were down 2% from December because of difficult market conditions.

Schwab's exchange-traded funds, launched in November, have already attracted $570 million of assets, according to Greg Gable, a spokesman for the company.
