If you’d like to make some investments but aren’t sure which shares to buy, you could look at exchange traded funds (ETFs) instead.

But which ETFs could be buys? Two that are very popular are listed below. Here’s what you need to know about them:

BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)

The first ETF to look at is the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF. This ETF provides investors with easy access to 100 of the largest non-financial companies listed on Wall Street’s famous exchange.

Among the 100 shares included in the ETF are giants such as Amazon, Apple, Meta (Facebook), Microsoft, Netflix, Nvidia, Tesla, and Google parent, Alphabet.

BetaShares thinks this ETF is a good option for Australian investors. It notes that the Nasdaq 100 ETF’s strong focus on technology provides diversified exposure to a high-growth potential sector that is under-represented in the Australian sharemarket.

VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF (ASX: MOAT)

Another ETF for investors to look at is the VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF. It could be a top option for investors that are fans of Warren Buffett and his investment style.

That’s because this ETF aims to invest in a group of companies that are deemed to be fairly valued and have sustainable competitive advantages. The latter is something that Mr Buffett calls moats, hence the name of the ETF.

At present there are a total of 52 shares included in the VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF. This includes companies from a range of sectors such as Adobe, Amazon, Boeing, Campbell Soup, Constellation Brands, Lockheed Martin, Microsoft, Walt Disney, and Wells Fargo.

As the ETF has generated an average annual return of 19.2% over the last 10 years, this investment strategy appears to have merits. If Warren Buffett’s long track record wasn’t enough evidence for you!
