Question
I am considering changing brokerage firms, but I want to leave my money in the same mutual funds. When I change will there be a fee? Do I have to sell the funds?

Answer
Jo

You should do the homework with the new broker for answers

But generally there is about a $75 fee to close an account at most firms

If the new firm will accept the funds you shouldn't have to sell. Definitely discuss why you would want to or not want to sell funds before the commitment. That is a loaded discussion

Good Luck
