If you’re wanting to add some diversification to your portfolio, then you might want to look at exchange traded funds (ETFs). This is because ETFs give investors easy access to a large and diverse number of different shares through just a single investment.

With that in mind, listed below are two ETFs which are popular with investors. Here’s what you need to know about them:

BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)

The BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF is one for investors to look closely at in February. This ETF aims to track the performance of an index that provides investors with exposure to the leaders in the global cybersecurity sector.

The fund includes a number of cybersecurity giants and emerging players. This includes the likes of Accenture, Cisco, Cloudflare, Crowdstrike, and Okta.

Given the increasing threat of cyber attacks on governments and businesses, demand for cybersecurity has been growing quickly and is expected to continue doing so in the future. This could make it a growth sector for at least the next decade. And with the cybersecurity sector being heavily under-represented on the ASX, this ETF could be a great way to gain exposure to the theme.

iShares S&P 500 ETF (ASX: IVV)

Another ETF to look at is the iShares S&P 500 ETF. It aims to provide investors with the performance of the illustrious S&P 500 Index, before fees and expenses. This famous index has been designed to measure the performance of the largest US equities.

Blackrock, the manager of the fund, notes that this ETF gives investors easy access to the top 500 U.S. stocks through a single investment. This can be used to diversify internationally and seek long-term growth opportunities for a portfolio.

Among the ETF’s largest holdings are giants such as Amazon, Apple, Berkshire Hathaway, Facebook, JP Morgan, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, and Tesla.
