Question by Sje: Roth IRA help – What type of funds to invest in for someone who knows little about investing?
I’m 34 and want to start a Roth IRA for myself and plan to to contribute the max amount in one contribution each year. I know I want to go with either Fidelity, Vanguard, or T. Rowe. I know very little about investing and would like to feel secure with the investment. I know there are too many funds to choose from and I don’t understand them. Thanks for your suggestions.

I know Fidelity (and probably the others too) has funds that are named by the year that you plan to retire (so you’d pick fund for the year 2040) that will automatically redistribute your money to be more aggressive when you’re younger and more conservative and safer as you age. They mix it up b/w stocks, bonds, and cash for you.

I exceed income limits for traditional IRA deduction but thought I’d open one to take advantage of long-term tax-deferred growth. However, a friend recommends investing in low-cost index funds in a taxable account, as capital gains taxes (currently) are only 15% and that withdrawls from an IRA later on will likely be at a greater rate than this (depending on my future tax bracket). Does this make sense? Is there something he’s not factoring in?

I am going to be getting out of my job in February and I need to lower my amount that I put into the investing each month. Do I just talk to my financial planner and he can take care of that.

Ive done this through First Command, and they been investing my money through Pioneer Investments and Franklin templeton.
