I have struggled with this for way too long: I’m afraid to invest improperly and break independence rules, so I only have a 401k. I work for a large (but not B4) accounting firm in the tax department. I heard that index funds are generally safe. Is that true? I have read our independence rules but struggle understand what I need to do to stay compliant. BTW I am in the tax dept but do not practice tax if that helps explain why this is such a struggle.

Interviewing for a role at Deloitte in their Operations Transformation practice (FS background). Read a comment pushing against moving to Big 4 that read "I'd be wary about being an unknown entity at a large company during a global pandemic."
