Greetings Chris,

Sooooo fools, I am looking for some suggestions on what fund family to get into and what funds to invest in. I am investing 100 dollars every month and plan on maxing it out at the end of the year. The current value of the Roth is about 6500. I have been looking at opening an account at Vanguard. Any other suggestions???

I'd likely say that another good fund family would be TIAA-CREF( that is also pretty good. Both companies though have at least a few good funds that you may want to look at. If you want some more oomph then I could suggest Janus, Oak Associates and PBHG for more aggressive fare and if you want a value tilt then Oakmark, Longleaf and Dodge & Cox come to mind but understand that these last fund families tend to each have their specialization and so it may take a couple of fund families to get the balance that comes more easily from a Fidelity, Vanguard, TIAA-CREF or T. Rowe Price.

FWIW, my Roth is with Vanguard in a couple of their funds.
