The Russell 3000 is a broad market index that pretty much every brokerage will have to offer. Same for Vanguard 500 (or similar 500 fund). Emerging markets -- go with MSCI Index (again, every brokerage will offer). Bond fund -- there are different ones. I dont' think I'm familiar with a broad based bond fund. They're usually tied to geographic region, etc.
