If you’re wanting to diversify your portfolio by investing in international shares, then exchange traded funds (ETFs) could help you achieve this.

But which ETFs should you look at? Here are two popular ETFs that could be worth considering:

BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF (ASX: ASIA)

The first ETF to look at is the BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF. It gives investors exposure to 50 of the largest technology and ecommerce companies that have their main area of business in Asia.

Among the companies you’ll be owning a slice of are tech giants such as Alibaba, Baidu, Infosys, JD.com, Kuaishou Technology, Meituan Dianping, Pinduoduo, Samsung, and Tencent Holdings.

In respect to Tencent, it is a multinational technology conglomerate and one of the largest companies in the world. It is best known for its communication and social platforms, Weixin, WeChat and QQ. In August, Tencent reported a 23% increase in half year revenue to US$42.3 billion. Underpinning this growth was a total of 1.251 billion monthly active users across its Weixin and WeChat platforms and QQ’s 590.9 million monthly active users.

VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF (ASX: MOAT)

When legendary investor Warren Buffett looks for an investment, he has a preference for companies with sustainable competitive advantages or moats. This could make the VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF a good option for anyone wanting to replicate Buffett’s style of investment.

This is because this ETF tracks an index intended to offer exposure to attractively priced companies with sustainable competitive advantages. Among the 50 companies included in the fund are the likes of Alphabet, Amazon, Boeing, Coca-Cola, McDonalds, Microsoft, Philip Morris, Pfizer, Salesforce, and Wells Fargo. It also includes exposure to Warren Buffett’s very own investment vehicle, Berkshire Hathaway.

Given that companies with moats have historically generated strong returns for investors, it will come as no surprise to learn that the index this ETF tracks has beaten the market over the last five and 10 years.
