If you don’t have enough funds to build a truly diverse portfolio, a quick way to add some diversity is with exchange traded funds (ETFs).
Through just a single investment, ETFs give investors exposure to whole indices, industries, and even themes.
There are a large number of ETFs for investors to choose from, but three that I rate highly right now are listed below. Here’s why I like them:
BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF (ASX: ASIA)
I think the BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF would be a great option for investors. This exchange traded fund provides investors with exposure to a number of exciting tech shares in the Asian market. These include the likes of ecommerce giant Alibaba, search engine company Baidu, and new Afterpay Ltd (ASX: APT) shareholder and WeChat owner, Tencent. These companies are revolutionising the lives of billions of people in the region and look very well-positioned to profit from it over the next decade.
BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)
Another option you can use to diversify is the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF. It provides investors with exposure to the 100 largest non-financial shares on the NASDAQ index. This includes giants such as Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft, and Starbucks. I believe many of these companies have the potential to grow at a quicker rate than the global economy over the next decade. This could lead to the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF providing stronger returns than the ASX 200 for the foreseeable future.
iShares Global Healthcare ETF (ASX: IXJ)
Another option for investors to consider is the iShares Global Healthcare ETF. I believe it could be a quality option for investors due to the increasing demand for healthcare services globally. This exchange traded fund provides exposure to companies across a range of sectors including biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and medical devices. This includes many of the world’s biggest healthcare companies such as CSL Ltd (ASX: CSL), Johnson & Johnson, Novartis, and Pfizer.
