Fidelity's reduction in min to invest in cheap index funds

Postby xpat73 » Sun Dec 30, 2012 12:25 pm

Does Fidelity's recent reduction in min to invest to get into cheap index stock and bond funds make them as good as, or even better than, Vanguard?

Now you can get into .07 er Index funds for $10,000 (previous was $100,000)
You can get into .1 index funds for $2,500 (previous was $10,000)

See below.

They are just now catching up with Vanguard in price. Vanguard has had $10,000 admiral shares for a while now. But yeah, I'd say Fidelity's Spartan funds are worth substitutes. I would gladly invest in either in my 401k if I had them.
