That's how I hear it worked in the 50's, but does anyone but the brokers ever gain any real interest from such accounts anymore? From everything I've ever seen and heard, they pretty much all now work such that basically all the earnings get scooped off the top by the banks/brokers themselves (who don't assume any of the risk themselves anymore) leaving the original investor with nothing more than their original invested amount. Brokers and managed accounts are turning into the new "savings" account anymore, you'd (literally) earn more annually just picking up
the loose change you see in a parking lot.

Are you referring to full service brokers, money managers, investment advisors, and the such? We're not looking for such, only an online brokerage that allow us to do our own stocks/funds investments. -- Andrei

If you are actively trading I like Interactive Brokers. I know u mentioned before about doing some day trading so they are also good for that. If you looking for a more buy and hold strategy for the Foundation then I would just choose which one has lower cost ETFs and trade commissions.
