You're welcome. And you SHOULD be very cautious. Keep learning, that's your best defense and offense at the same time...

You don't need a broker. He's scamming you.

You're only 49 years old. You have about a 20 year window until retirement, you don't have to be uber-conservative. However, you DON'T need a "broker" to take 2-10% of your money every year.

Figure out what your necessary living expenses would be for six months. Keep that in savings. Okay, you're "very conservative"...so keep one YEAR of NECESSARY living expenses in savings. I do that by having about 4 months of living expenses in a savings account, with 8 months of living expenses divided into 4 rolling 12-month CD's (I have a CD that comes due every 3 months). That's my emergency savings (I get hurt and can't work for a year)

Open a Vanguard, or fidelity, or Dodge & Cox, or (pick your company you like).

Put 50% of the remaining amount into a S&P 500 mutual fund. Look for one with low costs.

Put 25% of the remaining amount into domestic (US based) small cap mutual fund. Again, look for one with low costs.

Then put the rest into an international fund.

Now you're well-diversified, without paying the (likely) high fees of your broker.
