ETFs could be a very good option for the reason that you mention. I use them in my roth. I think with $2500 you could still diversify. I like the vanguard family of index funds and I try to diversify between S&P index, small cap, emerging market, and REIT. I favor funds that merely track an index rather than being managed as these tend to outperform in the long run with smaller fees. Definitely do your own DD
