Brokerage giant Charles Schwab will allow investors to buy fractional shares of stocks

Charles Schwab, one of the largest investment brokerage firms in the U.S. with $3.2 trillion in assets under management, will soon introduce a feature that allows users to purchase fractional shares on its platform, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal. 

The brokerage giant did not specify when the feature will be launched and instead tells the WSJ that it is "constantly working on new services designed to appeal to our evolving client base."
