Exchange traded funds (ETFs) can be great additions to a balanced portfolio. This is because they give investors easy access to a large and diverse number of different shares that you wouldn’t ordinarily have access to.

Due to their growing popularity, there are an increasing number of ETFs for investors to choose from.

In order to narrow things down, I have picked out three ETFs that are popular with investors right now:

BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF (ASX: ASIA)

The BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF tracks the performance of the 50 largest technology companies that have their main area of business in Asia (excluding Japan). Among the ETF’s holdings are Alibaba, JD.com, Pinduoduo, Samsung, Taiwan Semiconductor, and Tencent Holdings. As these and the other companies in the ETF are among the fastest growing in the region and revolutionising the lives of billions of people, they have been tipped to generate strong returns in the future.

BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)

The BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF gives investors exposure to 100 of the largest non-financial companies on the famous Nasdaq index. This includes some of the most iconic companies in the world such as Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Netflix, and Tesla. Given the quality of these companies and their very positive long term outlooks, the Nasdaq 100 ETF has been tipped to generate strong returns for investors over the next decade.

Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF (ASX: VGS)

The Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF is one of the most popular ETFs on the Australian share market. And it isn’t hard to see why. This ETF provides investors with exposure to over 1,500 of the world’s largest listed companies. This means through just a single investment, you can own a slice of companies such as Apple, Johnson & Johnson, Nestle, Procter & Gamble, and Visa. This could make it a good option if your portfolio lacks international exposure.
