Subject:  Too much with one fund family? Date:  12/5/2012  11:47 AM

I'm interested in your thoughts about investing in mutual fund families. Is it important to hold IRA accounts through different organizations or not? (I'm also ready to roll a 401(k)from an employer.)

I'm comfortable with one group and they have low expense ratios. However, Grandma used to say, "Don't put all your eggs in one basket". Is it smarter to pay a higher expense ratio just to spread your investment between at least 2 mutual fund groups, and thus lower risk?
