One increasingly popular way to invest is using exchange traded funds (ETFs). And it isn’t hard to see why.

Not only are ETFs an easy way to invest your hard-earned money, but they also provide investors with opportunities that were in some cases unattainable a decade ago.

With that in mind, I thought I would look at two ETFS that are popular with investors right now. They are as follows:

BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)

The first ETF to look at is the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF. It tracks the performance of an index that provides investors with exposure to the leading companies in the growing global cybersecurity sector.

This could be a great place to be invested. With cybercrime on the rise, demand for cyber security services is growing fast. This puts companies included in the fund, such as Accenture, Cisco, Cloudflare, Okta, and Crowdstrike, in a strong position for growth over the next decade.

In respect to the latter, CrowdStrike provides the increasingly popular Falcon platform. This platform delivers incident response and forensic analysis services that are designed to help businesses understand whether a breach has occurred. It then allows the user to respond and recover from a breach with speed and precision to remediate the threat.

VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF (ASX: MOAT)

Another ETF to look at is the VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF. This ETF gives investors exposure to a diversified portfolio of fairly valued companies with sustainable competitive advantages.

These competitive advantages, or moats, are something that many investors look for when making investments. And it is easy to see why. Over the last 10 years, the index the fund tracks has outperformed the market and generated a return of 22% per annum.

At present, there are a total of 50 US based stocks in the fund. This includes Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway, Intel, Kellogg Co, McDonalds, Microsoft, and Philip Morris.
