Mutual funds almost go hand-in-hand with retirement investing. And why not? The modern mutual fund predates exchange-traded funds (ETFs) by more than six decades. Most 401(k) plans hold nothing but mutual funds. So it's reasonable to link one with the other.But don't sleep on exchange-traded funds. As you'll soon find out, while many of the best ETFs out there are tactical strategies and great trading vehicles, some of them are dirt-cheap, long-term buy-and-hold dynamos that can give investors what they need in retirement: diversification, protection and income.Many (though not all) ETFs are simple index funds - they track a rules-based benchmark of stocks, bonds or other investments.

Which ones you buy and how much you allocate to each ETF depend on your individual goal, be they wealth preservation, income generation or growth.
