If you’re wanting to invest in exchange traded funds (ETFs), then you may want to look at the ones listed below.

These ETFs provide investors with access to some of the biggest and brightest tech companies across the globe. Here’s what you need to know about them:

BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF (ASX: ASIA)

The first ETF to consider is the BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF. This ETF gives investors exposure to some of the largest tech companies in the growing Asian market.

Among the ~50 companies included in the fund you’ll find Alibaba, Infosys, JD.com, Kakao, Meituan, Pinduoduo, Samsung, Taiwan Semiconductor, and Tencent.

In respect to Tencent, it is a multinational technology conglomerate and one of the world’s largest companies. It is best known for its super app WeChat, which has over 1.2 billion users. This app provides text messaging, voice messaging, food ordering, shopping, video conferencing, video games, sharing of photographs and videos, location sharing, and payments.

As for Pinduoduo, it is a US$77 billion e-commerce platform that offers a wide range of products from daily groceries to home appliances. The Pinduoduo platform connects distributors with consumers directly through an interactive shopping experience. This allows shoppers to team up to buy items in bulk at lower prices. It has an active customer base closing in on 1 billion.

BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)

Another ASX ETF to look at is the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF. This popular ETF gives investors exposure to the leading companies in the growing global cybersecurity sector.

Included in the fund are both global cybersecurity giants and emerging players from a range of global locations. All of which look set to benefit greatly from increasing demand for cybersecurity as online threats increase. Among the companies you’ll be buying a piece of are Accenture, Cisco, Cloudflare, Crowdstrike, Okta, and Splunk.

In respect to CrowdStrike, it provides the increasingly popular Falcon platform. This platform delivers incident response and forensic analysis services that are designed to help businesses understand whether a breach has occurred. It then allows the user to respond and recover from a breach with speed and precision to remediate the threat.

As for Okta, it provides businesses with workforce identity solutions. Okta helps secure access to the popular cloud apps that employees need to do their job such as Gmail, Office 365, and Salesforce to name just three. This is very important given the sensitive information that some of these apps contain.
