Brokerage Charles Schwab is giving most of its employees a special 5% pay raise as record stock market levels propel the industry’s earnings.

CEO Walt Bettinger said Thursday in a press release that he wanted to reward employees “for their contributions and their relentless commitment to see the world through clients’ eyes, even during the most challenging times.”

The raises “will be applied to the vast majority of the company’s employees, effective late September 2021,” the company said. “It will not include the company’s Executive Council or colleagues participating in Schwab’s incentive compensation plans.”
