fyi.... TD Ameritrade gave a $500 incentive when I transfered my 401(k) over to them... was nice since I was going to move it even without the incentive...

Another Fidelity fan here. I have access to an advisor if I need it, total access on the web and there are also options for fee based services if you want or need them.

I'd like to bump this thread with a question about fees. No loads. Surrender. Etc. I'm still interested in the general consensus with regard to their satisfaction with the fund management companies, but I would also like to know which ones do not have a bunch of fees attached to their services. Any thoughts?

BTW, I have Putnam and ING at present. Thus far, I have been terribly unhappy with ING. Their customer service people have been quite courteous, but their knowledge of policy and fee structure leaves much to be desired. Advice... practically null and void. Anyway, if I'm way off base with these folks as well as Putnam (which isn't much better in the way of fund offerings since, overall, my portfolio has decreased steadily over the years barring what's currently happening in the market which is devastating).

With TD Ameritrade I have acess to so many funds that I can cross all kind of fee scenarios (from no fee-no load to high fee with load)...

What I like about them is their research tools... you can screen funds based on the fee structures so you are only presented with what you deem acceptable...

They also have a class of funds where they waive fees.

Their research / reporting tools also give lots of fee related information for any fund you look at so you have full awareness of what the cost is and if that's acceptable.

We're primarily with T Rowe Price and Vanguard. Good results with these two so far.

I also just got an e-mail from TD Ameritrade about $500 bonus to transfer 401(k), but my current 401 (k) provider is Fidelity and it has a great on-line and on the phone support. Also Vanguard is another good place to transfer or rollover your 401(k) plan. I do have a Vanguard 500 Index Fund as a rollover and planning in the future to rollover my current 401 (K) into indexed funds with Vanguard.

Vanguard and Fidelity are real good-you might want to split what you have
and go 50-50 with both. I really like Vanguard. But Fidelity is my number 2 pick. I have them both, and if the economy would pick-up?
had them for both for many years. I loved the windsor fund with Neff, and still have it with the roll over I had to do-windsor 2 is also good.
