One investment option that is growing in popularity with investors is exchange traded funds (ETFs). And it certainly isn’t hard to see why they are so popular.

As well as being an easy way to invest your hard-earned money, they provide you with opportunities that were unattainable a decade ago.

Examples of this are the two ETFs listed below which are highly rated right now. Here’s what you need to know about these top ETFs:

BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)

The first ETF to look at is the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF. With the world shifting online, cyber security has become very important. In light of this, demand for cyber security services continues to increase and shows no sign of slowing. Especially given some high profile cyber attacks in 2021.

This bodes well for the companies included in the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF. These include many of the leading players in the global cybersecurity sector such as Accenture, Cisco, Cloudflare, Crowdstrike, Okta, and Palo Alto Networks.

VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF (ASX: MOAT)

A second ETF for investors to consider 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.

It is these competitive advantage, or moats, that legendary investor Warren Buffett looks for when he picks his investments. And given the success he has had over several decades, it’s hard to argue against this investment style.

At present, there are around 50 US based stocks included in the fund. This includes high quality companies such as Amazon, Bank of America, Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, Intel, McDonalds, Microsoft, Philip Morris, and Yum Brands.
