If you're looking to add some diversification to your portfolio in 2021, then you might want to look at exchange traded funds (ETFs).

ETFs are a great way to diversify because they give investors easy access to a large and diverse number of different shares that you wouldn't ordinarily have access to.

But given the large number of ETFs to choose from, it can be difficult to decide which ones to buy.

Two ETFs that are popular with investors and could be worth considering are listed below:

BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)

The first ETF to look at for 2021 is the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF. This ETF has been setup to track the performance of an index that provides investors with exposure to the leaders in the global cybersecurity sector.

Given the increasing threat of cyber attacks on governments and businesses, demand for cybersecurity has been growing quickly and is expected to continue doing so in the future.

The BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF includes a number of cybersecurity giants and emerging players. This includes the likes of Accenture, Cisco, Cloudflare, Crowdstrike, and Okta.

Another positive with this ETF is that it provides investors with access to a sector which is heavily under-represented on the ASX.

BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)

A second ETF to consider for 2021 is the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF. This highly popular ETF gives investors exposure to 100 of the largest non-financial companies on the famous Nasdaq index.

This means that investors will be buying a slice of some of the largest and most iconic companies in the world. And given their positive long term growth outlooks, the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF has the potential to provide strong returns for investors over the 2020s.

Included in the ETF are tech giants such as Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Netflix, PayPal, and Tesla. They are joined by non-tech stocks including Gilead Sciences, Pepsico, and Starbucks.
