If you’re looking for an easy way to invest your hard-earned money, then exchange traded funds (ETFs) could be worth considering.
Rather than deciding on which individual shares you should put your money into, ETFs will allow you to invest in a large group of shares through just a single investment.
With that in mind, here are three ETFs that are popular with investors right now:
BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)
The first ETF for investors to look at is the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF. This fund provides investors with exposure to the leaders in the global cybersecurity sector. BetaShares notes that this is heavily under-represented on the ASX, making this ETF particularly attractive for local investors. Especially given how the sector is forecast to grow materially in the future due to the increasing importance of cybersecurity. Among the companies in the fund are cybersecurity giants Accenture, Cloudflare, Crowdstrike, Okta, and Palo Alto Networks.
BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)
Another ETF to consider is the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF. This is one of the most popular ETFs around and it isn’t hard to see why. The BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF gives investors a slice of the 100 largest non-financial shares on the famous NASDAQ index. This means you’ll be buying a stake in tech giants including Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Netflix, and Tesla, to name just a few.
VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF (ASX: ESPO)
A final ETF to look at in December is the VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF. This ETF gives investors access to a portfolio of the largest companies involved in video game development, hardware, and esports. Among the companies you’ll be buying a slice of are giants such as Nvidia, Roblox, Take-Two, and Electronic Arts. VanEck notes that these companies are in a position to benefit from the increasing popularity of video games and eSports. It also highlights that it gives investors the opportunity to diversify their portfolio by providing tech options outside FAANG stocks.
