Hi all,

I have been reading up on the site and I am finding the material really interesting. I am, however, very new to investing and I have a few questions for anyone willing to help. I have a traditional IRA set up with ING right now, and after reading and doing research on them I know that there are better things out there. My first goal is to get my IRA set up in a place that I am happy with and then I'll consider how I want to invest beyond that. So my first question is this: There are a lot of funds recommended on this site, but is there centralized loaction that I can go and purchase some these different funds and make them part of my IRA portfolio? For example, the UMB Scout Small Cap (UMBHX) and the T. Rowe Price International Discovery (PRIDX) are two funds independent from each other, but if I wanted to invest in both as part of my totalIRA, how could I do so? Would have have to open seperate accounts with each fund? My only experience with managing my IRA funds is investing in the funds that ING offers, and I wanted to see what other options i have.

Thanks for your help in advance!

-KF
