  Creating Your Own Portfolio

    Use Money Central on MSN to setup your own portfolio.  When the website loads choose "My Portfolio" and then follow the step by step instructions.  We recommend that you use Money Central on MSN because you can find out the return of all your individual investments; although you will be required to enter in the symbols of the funds in your portfolio.  If you have any problems, please contact us.

    The next best site is Fidelity because your portfolios have already been set up for you. On Fidelity, you access your portfolio(s) by entering your social security and PIN number. However, Fidelity does not indicate the return on your investment.
