Rated 5 out of 5 by Friendly, with reliable investments I have utalized several investment firms for my IRAs in the past, but have begun moving all of my accounts over to Fidelity because I find that Fidelity is the most comprehensive, informative, and trustworthy firm that I have delt with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Client Enjoy the website. However, I do wish there was cash flow available of all securities on statements and on the system for entire individual equity portfolio including ETFs and closed end funds. Even if it was based on recent dividends paid would be helpful. It is very cumbersome to manually calculate. Thank you January 18, 2017

Rated 5 out of 5 by life savings When I lost my job of nearly twenty years I was devastated and nervously concerned about my 401k and what I should do. With my wife by my side we made a conference call to Fidelity. I was genuinely impressed with the advice and counsel of the Fidelity advisor and was more than happy to let him make any changes for me that would be to my best interest. I now have no concerns about the rollover of my 401k to an IRA. January 12, 2017

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lackluster My account is pretty much stagnant as are most these days. I have been retired for some years and my account supplements my income. At this point I cannot take risks, and it seems anything safe pays next to nothing in returns. I don't know what the answer to this is, but it seems Fidelity doesn't either. January 2, 2017
