    I actually heard only good things about them from some of my clients. One day I might open an account with them. I am not there yet… :-)

    Vanguard is pretty good Aloysa. Their mutual fund/ETF fees are some of the lowest and they are not a traditional MF company. They are very similar to a non-profit organization.

    I really do like the Vanguard model. They appear to have “done investors right” over the years.

    Vanguard started the low cost indexed approach and they continue to be the best.

    My father in law has a Vanguard account. I’m considering rolling over my 401k to them when the time come. I’m a big fan of Vanguard.

    @Roshawan: Totally agree!

    @DIY: Yes, one broker with least amount of hidden fees

    @RB40: Certainly. If indexing is your thing, Vanguard is hard to beat

    I had Vanguard for years and enjoyed it, but I decided to consolidate as I have some 401k funds in Fidelity. My parents are still there. There interface is way easier than before. :)

      Vanguard also has this feature where you can enter your assets from other brokerages and it’ll use that to calculate your total gain or loss. I thought that was pretty nifty! But then you do have to enter the figures manually.

    I love Vanguard and have invested with them for years and years. I have found their expense ratio to be quite low also.

      Vanguard’s fees are hard to beat! Schwab recently announced some ETFs with lower fees, but their volume is nowhere close to Vanguard’s.

    I am thinking of transferring my existing Edward Jones accounts to Vanguard. I have a traditional IRA and a Roth and a “single account”. When the funds are with Vanguard, will I have to stick with the fund allocations as they are currently, or do I get to just start fresh and pick and choose from the variety of Vanguard choices?

      You are free to choose any fund Vanguard provides.
