    I feel great kinship and enormous jealousy toward Orlando. Until now we have shared the same investment strategy but sadly my toy mice fell on the laps of IFAs and so I am not looking at these gains. After listening to Andrew talk and reading his book I am an eager but still slightly confused novice who wants to get going with my index/bond portfolio. Here is my current dilemma: Orlando talks about Vanguards' FTSE UK stock market index but this is a mutual fund. Andrew if I am not wrong, advocates exchange traded funds (ETFS) which Vanguard also offers. So for my FTSE index tracker which of these two Vanguard products am I meant to buy the mutual fund or the ETF?

    Apologies for the inexperience and many thanks for any advice that anyone can offer.
