Last note: Because I work for hedge funds (that is my area of expertise, on the technical side), I am forbidden from investing in individual securities or ETFs. For legal reasons, I am only allowed to invest in mutual funds for which I do not have any control over the decision making process. This avoids the issue of me personally trading a security that my fund may have privileged information on (and thus have it on their internal restricted list).

Just about all of the Vanguard ETFs have a corresponding mutual fund that invests in the same securities, though the mutual fund may have an expense ratio that is a few basis points higher.
