Charles Schwab Corp., the largest U.S. discount brokerage, said Wednesday it plans to buy ShareLink Investment Services, one of Britain's biggest discount brokerage firms, for about $65 million. The move would give Schwab a real presence in Britain, where it currently has a single office and serves mainly Americans living there. "Markets outside the U.S. represent an important opportunity for us," said Charles R. Schwab, the company's chairman.

In Europe, share prices come in all sizes, and in many cases that means too big to buy for the individual investor. Shares with the highest price hurdles are in Switzerland, where wealthy families and commercial banks account for no less than half of all stock ownership. Food maker Nestle SA's shares, for example, sell for 1,174 francs, or $1,024. Across Europe, shares of household names sell for prices that hamper their popularity with the everyday Francois on the street.
