re: Vanguard or Fidelity - gpburdell on 10/31/18 at 9:10 pm
Fidelity is superior as a financial services company. Vanguard investment products used to be clearly superior but not so such a big difference as before as there are so many low cost index options now. Though I still like to use them for my very long term holdings. I use Fidelity for all m...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Very happy with Fidelity. Also, I use Fidelity as my primary checking, credit card, and billpay. Everything in one place is nice.
