I am forbidden from investing in individual securities or ETFs. For legal reasons, I am only allowed to invest in mutual funds

For almost every ETF that it is worthwhile to consider(*), there is a corresponding mutual fund. says: "Vanguard ETFs are shares of conventional Vanguard index funds"

Vanguard Large-Cap Index Fund Investor Shares (VLACX) is the same as Vanguard Large-Cap ETF (VV)

(*) "worthwhile to consider" means a major asset-class index fund/etf. The fundadvice{dot}com article I mentioned links to another page with fund recommendations.
