If you don’t have the funds required to invest across a large number of different shares in order to maintain a diverse portfolio, then exchange traded funds (ETFs) could be the answer.
This is because ETFs give investors the option to invest in anything from tens to thousands of companies through just a single investment. This includes investing in themes, indices, countries, and industries.
While there are countless ETFs to choose from, two which I would buy are listed below. Here’s why I think they are among the best on offer:
BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF (ASX: ASIA)
One of my favourites ETFs is the BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF. Given how quickly the Asian economy is expected to grow over the next decade, having exposure to this side of the world seems like a particularly good idea to me. And what better group of shares to invest in than the 50 largest technology and ecommerce companies that have their main area of business in the region. These companies are among the fastest-growing in the region and look exceptionally well-positioned to be market-beaters over the next decade. Among its biggest holdings you’ll find the likes of ecommerce giant Alibaba, search engine Baidu, online retailer JD.com, and WeChat owner Tencent.
BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)
Another of my favourite ETFs is the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF. This fund gives investors exposure to the 100 largest non-financial businesses on Wall Street’s technology-focused NASDAQ index. This means that through a single investment, investors will be getting exposure to some of the biggest and well-known companies in the world. This includes the likes of Amazon, Alphabet, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, and Netflix, Tesla, and Zoom. Given the very positive long term outlooks of the majority of shares in the ETF, I believe it has the potential to provide investors with strong returns over the next decade.
