Exchange traded funds (ETFs) can be a great way for investors to diversify a portfolio. This is because they give investors access to a large group of shares through just a single investment.

But which ETFs should you look at? Listed below are two ETFs that are popular with ASX investors. Here's what you need to know and why they could be worth getting better acquainted with them:

BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF (ASX: ASIA)

The first ETF for ASX investors to look at is the BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF. This popular ETF gives investors easy exposure to many of the Asian region's most exciting growth shares. At present, the ETF is home to ~50 tech companies that are leading Asia's technological revolution.

Among its holdings are giants such as Alibaba, Baidu, JD.com, Pinduoduo, Samsung, Taiwan Semiconductor, and Tencent.

In respect to Baidu, it is the search engine giant regarded as the Google of China. But like Google, it is so much more than just search. Baidu is making great progress with artificial intelligence and is aiming to be an autonomous vehicle powerhouse.

As for Tencent, it is the tech giant responsible for the hugely popular WeChat super app which is used by approximately a billion people. This app also has a virtual duopoly with Alibaba's Ant Group in the mobile payments industry in the country.

BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)

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

Among the companies you'll be owning a slice of are Accenture, Cisco, Cloudflare, Crowdstrike, Okta, and Splunk.

CrowdStrike provides the popular Falcon platform. This platform delivers incident response and forensic analysis services that are designed to help businesses understand whether a breach has occurred.

As for Okta, it is a leading provider of workforce identity solutions. It provides cloud software that helps companies manage and secure user authentication into applications.
