I am in the exact same situation as well, but I think for an IRA, if you are interested in investing in a fund, isn't it better to just go straight to the company that offers the fund? Why go through a broker when you can open it yourself straight from the source. Maybe I'm missing something, but that is how I plan to open a Roth IRA. Of course, I'm looking for an index fund and that limits my selection right there so it's easier to narrow the field down. What I get from and all the other places I've looked is to open a Roth IRA in an index fund - seems pretty straightforward.
