Hi, Folks. I haven't been around for a while since things have been going smoothly in my long term buy and hold world.

I have a friend who is looking to put some money into a Roth, but doesn't have a lot of cash up front. I am wondering what company is the best choice, and allows someone to open a Roth for only $500? The preference would be to use Vanguard index funds and opening an account with them is not an option since she doesn't have the $1,000 (or is it $3,000?) to open the account.

She will just be doing the methodical investing X number of dollars per month, going into a simple total stock market/int'l fund.

Thanks!

-Amy
