Hello, in the course he talks about various brokerage accounts for purchasing and holding your securities. For example, buy a Vanguard fund in a Vanguard brokerage account, etc.
I currently have an Etrade account that I use. I am quite satisfied with it, and actually I have a couple Vanguard funds already. Though I can’t say I know all the pros and cons of this vs. the Vanguards/Fidelity, etc.
As far as I can tell, all these accounts are simply repositories from which I purchase and hold a fund. (With other services and education.)
Is there a difference I am not aware of? Why doesn’t he mention any of the Etrade/Ameritrade brokerage accounts? Am I missing something?
(I have not finished the course yet, so maybe he touches on this at some point).
Thanks for any guidance!
