With the end of the year approaching fast, investors may be starting to think about their investment options for 2022.
If ETFs are of interest to you, then the two listed below could be worth considering. Here’s what you need to know about these fantastic ETFs:
BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF (ASX: ASIA)
If you’re interested in gaining exposure to the growing Asian tech sector, then you can achieve this with the BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF.
BetaShares believes this is a good place to invest, noting that technological adoption in Asia is surpassing the West. Furthermore, this trend is expected to continue in the future, underpinning strong growth over the next decade.
Among the fund’s holdings you will find the likes of Alibaba, Baidu, JD.com, Meituan Dianping, Pinduoduo, Samsung, and Tencent.
Tencent is a multinational technology conglomerate and one of the largest companies in the world. Its communication and social platforms, Weixin (WeChat) and QQ, connect over a billion users with each other and with digital content and services. It also has a rapidly growing games business.
Another company in the fund is Alibaba. It is often referred to as the Amazon of China. It has close to a billion customers across its Alibaba, Taobao, and Tmall brands. From these platforms, the company is estimated to control over half of China’s e-commerce market.
Betashares Nasdaq 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)
Another ETF for investors to consider in 2022 is the hugely popular Betashares Nasdaq 100 ETF. It aims to track the performance of the famous NASDAQ-100 Index, which is home to 100 of the largest non-financial companies listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange.
Among its largest holdings are Google parent Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Intel, Microsoft, Netflix, Nvidia, PayPal, and Tesla. But it doesn’t stop there, there is also a whole range of lesser known but exciting companies such as Booking Holdings, Intuit, and MercadoLibre in the fund.
As a whole, these companies have collectively been outperforming the Australian share market by some distance over the last five years. And thanks to their positive long term outlooks, they appear well-placed to potentially continue this outperformance over the next five.
