I currently hold individual bonds in my IRA. When buying Vanguard bond funds in an IRA brokerage account, is there any way to lessen the fee that brokers charge to purchase no-load bond funds?

Greetings, Nosbocaj, and welcome. You asked:

No, there's not if you insist on buying the funds through the broker. However, you can avoid those fees by moving the funds to Vanguard itself and then making your purchase. Simply complete an application with Vanguard to do so, and in 20 to 45 days depending on how fast Vanguard and your broker act, the money will be in your new IRA fund account with Vanguard. Be aware that the broker can still charge you a small fee for removing money from that IRA to the new IRA.
