No. of Recommendations: 0

My sons 17th birthday is this week and I'd like to open a Roth IRA for him as one of his presents. I'm quite sure he will not see the value of this right now, but will in the future I suspect.

I would like recommendations on where this can be done relatively quickly, preferably online if possible.

I'm thinking some sort of S&P index fund?

Any recommendations for a good long term fund?

Also, are there any tips to opening a roth in a childs name? Wonder how that works???
