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 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 Energy Companies ETF (ASX: FUEL)
The first ETF to look at is the BetaShares Global Energy Companies ETF. As its name implies, this ETF provides investors with easy access to a group of global energy companies. These companies look well-placed to benefit from high energy prices, which is being caused by tight supply conditions. Among the ~55 shares included in the funds are energy giants such as BP, Chevron, ExxonMobil, and Royal Dutch Shell.
ETFS Battery Tech & Lithium ETF (ASX: ACDC)
Another ETF to look at is the ETFS Battery Tech & Lithium ETF. It provides investors with exposure to a range of companies involved in battery technology and lithium mining. These are the companies that look set to benefit greatly from the shift to clean energy and electric vehicles. Included in the ETF are AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group, Lockheed Martin, Mineral Resources Limited (ASX: MIN), and Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX: PLS). Jessica Amir from Saxo Markets believes this ETF could be a top option for investors. She suggested that it could be good for investors that aren’t keen on stock-picking but want to gain exposure to the carbon neutral megatrend.
VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF (ASX: ESPO)
A final ETF to look at is the VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF. This ETF gives investors easy exposure to a portfolio of the largest companies involved in video game development, hardware, and eSports. The gaming market has been growing strongly in recent years and now has an estimated 2.7 billion gamers globally according to VanEck. This bodes well for companies included in the fund such as Nvidia, Roblox, Take-Two, and Electronic Arts.
