If you’re looking for an easy way to invest your hard-earned money, then exchange traded funds (ETFs) could be worth considering. Rather than deciding on which individual shares you should put your funds into, ETFs allow you to invest in a large group of shares through just a single investment.

With that in mind, here are three ETFs that are highly rated:

BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)

The first ETF to look at is the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF. As its name implies, this fund provides investors with exposure to the leaders in the global cybersecurity sector. BetaShares notes that this is heavily under-represented on the ASX, making this ETF particularly attractive for local investors. Especially as the sector is forecast to grow materially over the next decade due to the growing importance of cybersecurity. Among the companies in the fund are cybersecurity giants Accenture, Cloudflare, Crowdstrike, and Okta. 

BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)

A second ETF to consider is the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF. This is one of the most popular ETFs around and for very good reason. The BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF gives investors a slice of the 100 largest non-financial shares on the famous NASDAQ index. This means you’ll be buying a stake in tech giants including Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Netflix, and Tesla, to name just a few. 

VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF (ASX: ESPO)

A final ETF to look closely at is the VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF. This ETF gives investors exposure to a portfolio of the largest companies involved in video game development, hardware, and eSports. This side of the market has been growing strongly in recent years and is expected to continue doing so over the medium term. Some of the companies you’ll be buying a slice of include Nvidia, Take-Two, and Electronic Arts. VanEck notes that these companies are in a position to benefit from the increasing popularity of video games and eSports.
