Exchange traded funds (ETFs) can be great additions to a balanced portfolio. This is because they give investors easy access to a large and diverse number of different shares that you wouldn't ordinarily have access to.
Due to their growing popularity, there are an increasing number of ETFs for investors to choose from. To narrow things down, I have picked out three ETFs that are popular with investors right now:
BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF (ASX: ASIA)
The BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF tracks the performance of the 50 largest technology and ecommerce companies that have their main area of business in Asia, excluding Japan. This includes giants such as Alibaba, Samsung, and Tencent Holdings. As these and the other companies in the ETF are among the fastest growing in the region and revolutionising the lives of billions of people, they have been tipped to generate strong returns for investors over the 2020s.
BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)
The BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF aims to track the performance of an index that provides investors with exposure to the leaders in the global cybersecurity sector. This includes a number of cybersecurity giants and emerging players, such as Accenture, Cisco, and Cloudflare, Crowdstrike, and Okta. BetaShares notes that the cybersecurity sector is heavily under-represented on the ASX. This ETF ensures that Australian investors don't miss out on the growing demand for these services.
BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)
The BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF gives investors exposure to 100 of the largest non-financial companies on the famous Nasdaq index. This includes some of the biggest and most iconic companies in the world. Among its holdings you'll find the likes of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Netflix, and Tesla. Given the quality of these companies and their very positive outlooks, the Nasdaq 100 ETF has been tipped as one that could generate strong returns for investors over the next decade.
