The Investment Environment

For the six-month reporting period ended September 30, 2022, U.S. and international stocks generally lost ground as a result of accelerating inflation, rising interest rates, and geopolitical tensions, including the war in Ukraine. Albeit decelerating, COVID-19 continued to weigh on economies worldwide, with highly transmissible variants and subvariants keeping infection rates high in many areas. Economic growth around the world slowed and recession fears rose. As Russia’s war against Ukraine raged on, oil prices remained elevated for much of the period, hitting a reporting-period high in early June before retreating. Over the reporting period, the U.S. dollar strengthened against a basket of international currencies, generally decreasing the returns on overseas investments in U.S. dollar terms. For the reporting period, the S&P 500® Index, a bellwether for the overall U.S. stock market, returned -20.20%. Among U.S. stocks, large-cap stocks underperformed small-cap stocks, with the Russell 1000® Index and Russell 2000® Index returning -20.51% and -19.01%, respectively. Outside the United States, the MSCI EAFE® Index (Net)*, a broad measure of developed international equity performance, returned -22.51%, while the MSCI Emerging Markets Index (Net)* returned -21.70%. As interest rates rose over the reporting period, yields climbed and bond prices fell with the Bloomberg US Aggregate Bond Index, representing the broad U.S. bond market, returned -9.22%. (Bond yields and bond prices typically move in opposite directions.)
The U.S. economy showed signs of weakening over the reporting period. Amid ongoing supply chain disruptions, persisting inflation, and a tight labor market, gross domestic product (GDP) decreased at an annualized rate of -0.6% for the second quarter of 2022, following a decrease at an annualized rate of -1.6% for the first quarter of 2022. The unemployment rate remained near pre-pandemic lows over the reporting period. Inflation remained stubbornly high due to supply chain bottlenecks and soaring energy and food prices.
Outside the United States, global economies also wrestled with the fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic, high energy costs, rising inflation, and the war in Ukraine. The eurozone, heavily impacted by the war in Ukraine and associated commodity price spikes, managed to eke out small gains in GDP for both the first and second quarters of 2022 as COVID-19 restrictions eased and tourism increased in response to pent-up demand. The United Kingdom also posted

The Investment Environment (continued)

small increases in GDP growth for the first and second quarters of 2022, in part driven by increases in COVID-19 testing and tracing and an expansion of its vaccination program. In Japan, following a slight contraction for the first quarter of 2022, GDP growth was positive for the second quarter of 2022 as COVID-19 restrictions were lifted and government spending rose. Among emerging markets, China’s GDP growth remained positive but slowed notably as it dealt with numerous headwinds including the political landscape, an emphasis on domestic consumption over globalization, lockdowns and quarantines, and a severe property downturn as a result of stalled demand, a decline in financing for property development, halted construction on in progress projects, and homeowners pausing payment of their mortgages on incomplete builds. India’s GDP growth jumped for the second quarter of 2022 on rising consumer demand and a rapid decline in COVID-19 cases.
Monetary policy around the world varied. In the United States, after raising interest rates by 0.25% in mid-March 2022—its first hike since December 2018—the U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) increased the federal funds rate four times during the reporting period—by 0.50% in early May, 0.75% in mid-June, 0.75% in late July, and 0.75% in late September—in its ongoing efforts to achieve a return to price stability. The federal funds rate ended the reporting period in a range of 3.00% to 3.25%. The Fed reiterated that further rate hikes were likely by the end of 2022. In June, the Fed also began to reduce the $9 trillion in assets it holds on its balance sheet, vowing to be even more aggressive than during its last round of quantitative tightening in 2017 through 2019. Outside the United States, central banks were generally similarly responsive. After holding its policy rate unchanged since March 2016, at 0.00%, the European Central Bank raised its interest rate by 0.50% in July 2022, followed by a 1.25% increase in September 2022. European Central Bank policymakers also set expectations for future rate increases in an effort to dampen demand and control inflation. The Bank of England raised its key official bank rate four times during the reporting period, to 2.25%, bringing borrowing costs to a 13-year high as the Bank of England wrestles with soaring inflation. In contrast, the Bank of Japan upheld its short-term interest rate target of -0.1%, unchanged since 2016, but reiterated that it would not hesitate to take extra easing measures if needed. Central banks in India, Indonesia, Brazil, Mexico, and Pakistan all raised rates multiple times over the reporting period to counteract the impacts of inflation. In contrast, China cut its rate in August 2022, its second rate reduction in 2022. Russia, which raised its benchmark policy rate to 20% in late February 2022 amid the broadening fallout of Western sanctions in retaliation against Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, reduced it several times during the reporting period.
Nearly all U.S. bond markets posted negative returns for the reporting period, with the exception of the shortest (one- and three- month U.S. Treasury bills), which posted slightly positive returns. Even U.S. Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities lost ground for the reporting period. Yields on U.S. Treasuries climbed during the reporting period in response to the Fed’s monetary policy actions. The yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury began the reporting period at 2.32% and ended it at 3.83%, just off the reporting-period high of 3.97% recorded three days earlier. Short-term rates also rose, with the yield on the three-month U.S. Treasury climbing from 0.52% to 3.33% over the reporting period.

Schwab Target Index Funds
Fund Expenses (Unaudited)
Examples for a $1,000 Investment
As a fund shareholder, you may incur two types of costs: (1) transaction costs; and (2) ongoing costs, including management fees.
The expense examples below are intended to help you understand your ongoing cost (in dollars) of investing in a fund and to compare this cost with the ongoing cost of investing in other mutual funds. These examples are based on an investment of $1,000 invested for six months beginning April 1, 2022 and held through September 30, 2022.
Actual Return lines in the table below provide information about actual account values and actual expenses. You may use this information, together with the amount you invested, to estimate the expenses that you paid over the period. To do so, simply divide your account value by $1,000 (for example, an $8,600 account value ÷ $1,000 = 8.6), then multiply the result by the number given for your fund under the heading entitled “Expenses Paid During Period.”
Hypothetical Return lines in the table below provide information about hypothetical account values and hypothetical expenses based on a fund’s actual expense ratio and an assumed return of 5% per year before expenses. Because the return used is not an actual return, it may not be used to estimate the actual ending account value or expenses you paid for the period.
You may use this information to compare the ongoing costs of investing in a fund and other funds. To do so, compare this 5% hypothetical example with the 5% hypothetical examples that appear in the shareholder reports of the other funds.
Please note that the expenses shown in the table are meant to highlight your ongoing costs only and do not reflect any transactional costs. Therefore, the hypothetical return lines of the table are useful in comparing ongoing costs only and will not help you determine the relative total costs of owning different funds. In addition, if these transactional costs were included, your costs would have been higher.
