Fidelity Index Funds vs. Vanguard ??
« on: November 21, 2019, 12:12:37 PM »
I am getting ready to retire and am planning to move nest egg accounts into index funds.

I am liking what I have researched about Vanguard index funds.   My thought is to keep it simple with either a 3 fund approach (VTSAX,VTIAX,VBTLX) or maybe 4-fund approach (VTSAX,VTIAX,VBTLX,VTABX).  Think Bogleheads!
Planned allocation will be 60/40.

  However, in some ways I prefer working with Fidelity.  I like web tools and have had an account with them in the past.  That plus, I can drive to a Fidelity branch and meet with someone if need be.  I go back and forth between investing in Vanguard or use Fidelity and their index funds.  I don't know that much yet about the Fido index fund offerings.


  My question is, what index funds at Fidelity would be comparable to the VG funds VTSAX,VTIAX,VBTLX,VTABX ??  Which would you recommend?

I am looking for low ER, no fees, and will be mostly hands off.

Thx
