If you’re interested in buying some exchange traded funds (ETFs), then the two listed below could be worth considering.
Here’s what a top analyst is saying about these ETFs:
BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)
The first ETF for ASX investors to look at next week is the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF. This fund provides investors with exposure to the leaders in the global cybersecurity sector. BetaShares notes that this sector is heavily under-represented on the ASX, which could make this ETF particularly attractive for local investors.
Among the companies in the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF are cybersecurity giants such as Accenture, Cloudflare, Crowdstrike, Okta, and Palo Alto Networks.
Felicity Thomas from Shaw and Partners is a big fan of this ETF.
She recently told Livewire that she rates this ETF highly “because cybercrime is meant to cost the world $10.5 trillion by 2025, which is huge. It also has amazing names in it like CrowdStrike. In a connected world where everyone is attached to their devices, it’s becoming the biggest problem that we’re all facing.”
VanEck Vectors MSCI World ex Australia Quality ETF (ASX: QUAL)
Another ETF that is highly rated is the VanEck Vectors MSCI World ex Australia Quality ETF.
As the name implies, this ETF gives investors exposure to a high quality basket of shares from across the world. And as it excludes Australian shares, it could be a good option for investors that are already overweight with local investments.
To be included in the fund, companies need to pass certain criteria. This includes low leverage, high earnings growth rates, and high returns on equity. Among its holdings are the likes of Apple, Microsoft, Nike, and Nvidia.
Thomas also believes this ETF is a buy. She explained: “So for me, it’s actually a buy. With rising interest rates and the war that’s going on in Europe, I actually think it’s important to invest in quality companies with high revenue growth and a solid balance sheet, which QUAL provides.”
