A new month is approaching, so what better time to consider making some portfolio changes.

If you’re interested in ETFs, then you may want to consider the three listed below.  Here’s why they could be top options for investors next month:

BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)

If you’re wanting to gain exposure to the beaten down US tech sector, then the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF could be the way to do it. This ETF provides investors with access to the 100 largest non-financial shares on the NASDAQ index. Among the 100 shares included in the fund are some of the highest quality companies in the world. This includes giants such as Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Netflix, and Tesla.

iShares Global Consumer Staples ETF (ASX: IXI)

Another ETF for investors to look at is the iShares Global Consumer Staples ETF. This fund provides investors with exposure to a large number of global consumer staples companies that produce essential products. These include food, tobacco, and household items. Because demand for these types of products is relatively consistent whatever happens in the economy (such as high inflation), this ETF could be suitable for investors that are looking for quality and low risk options. Among its holdings are the likes of Coca-Cola, Nestle, PepsiCo, Procter & Gamble, Unilever, and Walmart.

VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF (ASX: ESPO)

A final ETF for investors to look at is the VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF. This ETF gives investors exposure to the growing video gaming market. Among the companies included in the fund are hardware giant Nvidia and game developers Roblox, Take-Two and Electronic Arts. VanEck points out that these companies are in a position to benefit from the increasing popularity of video games and eSports.
