If you’re looking for an easy way to invest, then exchange traded funds (ETFs) could be worth considering. Rather than deciding which individual shares to buy, 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 analysts and investors right now:
BetaShares Global Energy Companies ETF (ASX: FUEL)
The first ETF to look at is the BetaShares Global Energy Companies ETF. This ETF provides investors with access to a group of global energy companies. This could make it a top option for investors looking to gain exposure to sky-high energy prices. Among the 50+ shares included in the fund are energy giants such as BP, Chevron, ExxonMobil, and Royal Dutch Shell. Last week the latter reported a quarterly profit of US$9.13 billion, which was almost triple its US$3.2 billion profit from the same period last year.
VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF (ASX: ESPO)
Another 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, which is more than Netflix and iPhone users combined. To be included in the fund, a company is required to generate at least 50% of their revenues from video gaming and eSports. Making the cut are the likes of Nvidia, Roblox, Take-Two, and Electronic Arts.
Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF (ASX: VGS)
A final ETF for investors to look at is the Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF. This ETF provides investors with exposure to a massive ~1,500 of the world’s largest listed companies. This could make it a good option for investors seeking to add some diversification to a portfolio. Among the companies you’ll be investing in are giants such as Amazon, Apple, Johnson & Johnson, JP Morgan, Nestle, Procter & Gamble, and Visa.
