I'm torn pondering which route to open a taxable investment account. I'm interested in DODBX that I would like to buy and hold. But I am not sure if I should open an account with Scottrade or directly with Dodge&Cox.

I pondered the this question a couple of years ago with my wife's Roth IRA. I decided to go with Scottrade. My wife's Roth is now worth over $10,000, invested %100 in DODBX. At the first of the year, I'm going to start buying into the Vanguard REIT fund. I plan to leave all the DODBX shares alone and let them grow. Having this account at Scottrade give me the flexibility to do this.
