Exchange traded funds (ETFs) can be a fantastic way to balance out a portfolio.
This is because ETFs provide investors with easy access to a large and diverse group of shares that you wouldn’t usually have access to.
With that in mind, I have picked out two ETFs that are popular with investors right now. Here’s what you need to know about them:
BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)
The first ETF to look at is the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF. It gives investors exposure to the leading companies in the growing global cybersecurity sector.
Among the ETF’s largest holdings are Accenture, Cisco, Crowdstrike, Okta, Palo Alto Networks, and Tenable.
Given how cyber crime is rising, demand for their cyber security services continues to grow. This puts these companies in a good position to outperform over the next decade. And with the Australian share market having little exposure to this market, this ETF is particularly attractive.
Over the last five years, the index the fund tracks has generated a return of 24.15% per annum for investors.
Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF (ASX: VGS)
Another ETF for investors to consider this week is the Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF.
Vanguard believes this ETF could be a good option due it offering low-cost access to a broadly diversified range of shares that allow investors to participate in the long-term growth potential of international economies outside Australia.
There are a whopping 1503 shares included in the ETF at present. Among its largest holdings are the likes of Amazon, Apple, Home Depot, Johnson & Johnson, JP Morgan, NVIDIA, and Visa.
Over the last five years, the ETF has generated a return of 15.7% per annum for investors.
