If you’re looking for an easy way to invest, then exchange traded funds (ETFs) could be worth considering.
This is because rather than deciding on which individual shares you should buy, ETFs allow you to invest in a large group of shares through just a single investment.
With that in mind, I have picked out three popular ETFs that could be worth a closer look. They are as follows:
BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)
The first ETF to look at is the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF. With cybersecurity continuing to grow in importance, demand for cybersecurity services is increasing and shows little sign of slowing. Especially given some high profile cyber attacks this year. The BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF gives investors easy access to this trend by providing exposure to the leading players in the global cybersecurity sector. This means you’ll be buying a slice of companies such as Accenture, Cisco, Cloudflare, Crowdstrike, and Okta.
iShares S&P 500 ETF (ASX: IVV)
Another ETF for investors to look at is the iShares S&P 500 ETF. This ETF gives investors exposure to the top 500 U.S. stocks through a single investment. Blackrock believes this can be useful for investors seeking to diversify internationally. It also notes that it offers long-term growth opportunities for a portfolio. Among the companies included in the fund are Amazon, Apple, Disney, Facebook, JP Morgan, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, Tesla, and Visa.
VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF (ASX: ESPO)
A final ETF for investors to look at is the VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF. This ETF gives investors targeted exposure to companies that derive a significant portion of their revenues from the video gaming and eSports industry. Among the shares included in the fund are hardware giant Nvidia and game developers Activision Blizzard, Electronic Arts, Nintendo, Roblox, and Take-Two. VanEck notes that these companies are in a position to benefit from the increasing popularity of video games and eSports.
