Well, anyone who sells them, basically. Much like anything else, shop around based on level of service, expected rate of return, and obviously price/commisions that they charge.
Mine is through a certified financial planner. I think she hits me for $10 every year on each plan (mine and my wife'*). Could be better, could be a lot worse. But I'm comfortable with her and she'* never given me shady advice.
Any broker should be able to sell you an IRA, or at least point you to someone that he/she recommends. If you'd like, PM me and I can hook you up with my lady. She'* out of Dearborn, MI. I've only met her once, but had numerous phone conversations with her. I was referred to her by my uncle who lives in FL. He'* never met her in person.
