I'm a big fan of exchange traded funds (ETFs) and believe they are a great way for investors to both diversify their portfolios and gain exposure to areas that are not represented on the ASX.
But which ones should you buy? Two high quality ETFs that I like are listed below:
BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF (ASX: ASIA)
I think the BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF could be a great option for investors. This is because it gives investors a way to invest in the biggest and brightest technology and ecommerce companies that have their main area of business in Asia. BetaShares notes that through a single trade, this ETF provides diversified exposure to a high-growth sector that is under-represented in the Australian share market.
Which shares are included in the fund? There are 50 companies included within the ETF. These include industry giants such as Alibaba, Baidu, JD.com, and Tencent Holdings. Given the very positive outlooks of these companies, I believe this ETF has the potential to generate market-beating returns for investors over the next decade and beyond.
iShares Global Healthcare ETF (ASX: IXJ)
Another ETF to consider buying is the iShares Global Healthcare ETF. This fund gives investors a slice of some of the largest players in the global healthcare industry such as Johnson & Johnson, Novartis, Pfizer, Roche, and Sanofi. It also includes locally listed healthcare stars CSL Ltd (ASX: CSL), Ramsay Health Care Limited (ASX: RHC), and Sonic Healthcare Limited (ASX: SHL).
Due to the positive outlook for the healthcare sector globally over the next couple of decades because of ageing populations and increased chronic disease, I believe it could provide strong returns for investors over the long term. Overall, I feel this could make it a top pick for investors right now.
