Microsoft ####
Jan 4 18 Comments

Im new to the investment game. I have my brokerage account with fidelity through Microsoft. Im looking to invest in index funds

40% Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund
30% Vanguard Total International Stock Index Fund
30% Vanguard Total Bond Market Index Fund

But all these Vanguard index funds does not take any new investors when i tried using fidelity website. Any suggestions of how to get into these vanguard index funds.

What are the better alternatives if above is not possible

    I would advise going for ETFs. They have lower expense ratios and no minimum any requirements. Also trades are commission free.

      I already checked that. As these are new funds which were created only 6 months before, no one knows how the returns are going to be

      You can guess based on their holdings. If it’s a s&p500 fund you can assume it will be near identical to the s&p500

    Honestly, you should open account from Schwab, they have better UI and more importantly - lower expense ratio. Message me if you got more questions.

      You should look at the holdings of the two funds and see the difference.

    Maybe reduce bond by 10-20% if you’re young ;)

    Look for vanguard etf equivalents. They are supported for any amounts

    FBGRX is a blue chip fund with no initial barrier and average fees through fidelity

    If you are using fidelity, search for FZROX, and FZILX for the first two. They are zero expense funds. I don’t know if they have zero fee index funds for bonds. If this is a taxable account, take a look at municipal bonds, that are tax free. They track indexes and should perform close enough to those.
