Multinational financial services company Charles Schwab is the latest major legacy financial player to push deeper into the cryptocurrency industry

American financial services company Charles Schwab has filed to launch a Crypto Economy exchange-traded fund (ETF).

Last week, Jonathan Craig, head of investor services at Charles Schwab, revealed that roughly 16% of Schwab clients had intended to invest in cryptocurrencies in the first half of 2022.
