Early-career PhDs often get stuck in their investing journeys on the question of which brokerage firm to invest with. In this webinar, we discuss in detail the pros and cons of three types of brokerage firms: those specializing in mutual funds, microinvesting platforms, and roboadvisors. I give specific examples of brokerages in each of those categories and outline how to evaluate them. The webinar concludes with an illustration of the importance of minimizing fees.
