Chuck Schwab

Chuck. The story of an investing revolution

You know Charles Schwab as our founder and the man who helped make investing accessible to everyone. But did you know he was a door-to-door insulation salesman? Or that he almost flunked out of college? Or that he raised chickens as a boy? Now you can find out where it all started for Schwab (the man and the company), and how he went from dyslexic student to Wall Street disruptor, as the company went from start-up to industry leader, in the new documentary “Chuck” by Oscar-winning director Ben Proudfoot.
