What’s good for someone else may not be good for you. Depending on your needs, one firm may make more sense than another. For example, some of the investment firms will fall off your list of possibilities immediately, as they require large dollars to open an account. If you’re rich, you probably won’t need to worry about that. Another example, you may need to find a place that helps you more than others, and you would end up paying for that. If you were a savvy investor, more confident in your investing strategies, you may decide to go with a less costly, hands on investment company. Check out our sponsors, many offer great deals – and show comparisons between them and their competitors. You can certainly find some deals out there if you took the time to research.
