Best way to invest my money on mutual funds?

All, I have $2500 that I would like to invest in mutual funds. And every month put in a couple hundred to invest in. Now, I am not very savvy when it comes to financial investment. I read that Fidelity is a very good mutual fund house. They have a couple of Fidelity office around my job. Would it be a big mistake if I go there and talk to one of their rep to help me invest my money? What should I ask for, look for? Thanks for any info!

Just decide what " Risk" level you are comfortable with and select a fund that meets that criteria. Usually higher risk can also equal higher return possibilities. Fidelity has many good funds. Also ask yourself : IRA, ROTH IRA, or non-tax deferred?

Make sure to look for funds that don't have excessive management fees as well
