"We" indicates more than one person, so at minimum you'll need at least 2 IRA accounts, which can be at different brokerage companies. For the most part, your account is insured, so if something happens to the brokerage company, you'll eventually get your holdings back. The only time you'd need more than one company is if your account exceeds the insurance amount, which is around $5 million, something higher than what I have, so I could be wrong. The real question is the type of broker you intend to use. Are you going with a full service broker or do you feel more comfortable investing yourself or do you want to do both. That will determine how many accounts you should have.
