For a number of years I have recommended Vanguard as THE place to invest in index funds. That has changed. I decided to eat my own cooking and set up an account at Vanguard. It took a total of over two hours-forty five minutes, five phone calls, and four agents to get it completed–and then invested in the wrong index fund.
