No. of Recommendations: 0
I have a pretty savvy accountant, who is more than worth the money he charges to do my taxes. Normally I glean enough money info off of him to more than pay the bill.

Anyway when it comes to mutual fund investing he recommends only Vanguard, Fidelity or America Funds; or the big three. He claims that any one of these companies is bigger than all the other (excluding the other two) mutual fund companies combined.

The smaller companies are subject to the whim of the readers of Kiplingers and Money. A good article and money flows in, a bad one and they may have to liquidate assets.

While this is true of all small funds, he claims it is much less of an issue with the big three.
