I have a Scottrade account. A fund I may be interested in does not list Scottrade under Broker Availability. Surenuf, Scottrade does not list it as an available fund.

Would seem to me that all interested parties would want maximum offering exposure. Why would Scottrade not have this fund available? And who makes that call? Does the fund control who can offer it or does the broker control what they offer or can it be either way?

If I want this fund, then I have to open another account where the fund will be available? If I want to put it in an IRA, then I have to track multiple accounts to accumulate any contributions to stay within the contribution limits? Correct?

Is this the way it is or is there a work-around?

Why don't you just invest in the fund directly?
For the life of me I don't understand why anyone would use a broker to buy a mutual fund.
