As my colleague covered here, exchange traded funds (ETFs) continue to grow in popularity with Australian investors.

If you’re looking to jump on the bandwagon, then you might want to take a look at the quality ETFs listed below. They give investors exposure to a host of exciting companies across the tech sector:

BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)

The first ETF to look at is the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF.  As you might have guessed from its name, this ETF gives investors exposure to the leading companies in the cybersecurity sector.

The fund currently includes 40 cybersecurity companies ranging from industry giants to emerging players. Among its holdings are Accenture, Cisco, Cloudflare, Crowdstrike, Fortinet, Okta, Proofpoint, Splunk, and Zscaler.

In respect to Splunk, it is the world’s first Data-to-Everything Platform. It allows users to modernise their security operations with a portfolio of advanced data, analytics and operations solutions that help them defend against the latest threats.

Whereas Zscaler enables secure digital transformation by rethinking traditional network security, and empowering enterprises to securely work from anywhere.

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

Another ETF to look at is the VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF. This ETF gives investors access to a portfolio of the leading companies involved in video game development, eSports, and gaming related hardware and software globally.

VanEck notes that the fund provides a dynamic growth opportunity for investors. This is due to its focus on companies that are positioned to benefit from the increasing popularity of video games and eSports.

Among the 25 companies you would be buying a slice of are the likes of Activision Blizzard, Electronic Arts, Nintendo, Nvidia, Take-Two Interactive, and Tencent Holdings.

In respect to Nvidia, it sparked the growth of the PC gaming market in 1999 by redefining modern computer graphics and revolutionising parallel computing. Since then, its GPU deep learning ignited modern artificial intelligence, which is the next era of computing.

Nvidia is also a way for investors to gain exposure to the crypto boom. It recently launched new hardware designed specifically for crypto mining and sales have been going through the roof.
