If you’re looking for an easy way to invest in international shares for diversification, then exchange traded funds (ETFs) could be the answer.

But which ETFs should you look at? Here are two popular ETFs that have generated strong returns for investors:

BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF (ASX: ASIA)

The BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF gives investors access to a group of the most promising technology companies in the Asian market. The ETF is invested in a total of 50 of the largest technology and ecommerce companies that have their main area of business in Asia (excluding Japan).

This means you’ll be buying a slice of tech giants such as Alibaba, Baidu, JD.com, Samsung, and Tencent Holdings.

According to BetaShares, due to its younger and tech-savvy population, Asia is surpassing the West in respect to technological adoption. As a result, this area of the economy is anticipated to remain a growth sector for a long time to come. This could make it a great place to invest over the long term.

The BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF has been a very strong performer over the last 12 months. Since this time last year, it has provided an 80% return for investors.

BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)

Another BetaShares ETF to consider is the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF. As its name implies, this ETF aims to track the performance of the famous NASDAQ 100 index.

The NASDAQ 100 comprises 100 of the largest non-financial companies listed on the NASDAQ exchange. BetaShares notes that it includes many companies that are at the forefront of the new economy. This includes companies such as Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, Netflix, and Tesla, to name just five.

BetaShares also notes that with a strong focus on technology, the ETF provides diversified exposure to a high-growth potential sector that is under-represented on the Australian share market.

Since this time last year, the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF is up a market-beating 21%.
