If you’re wanting to invest after the recent (and ongoing) market weakness, then ETFs could be a good option if you’re not sure which individual shares to buy.

This is because ETFs allow you to buy multiple (sometimes even thousands) of shares through a single investment.

With that in mind, listed below are two ETFs that could be good long-term options for investors. Here’s what you need to know about them:

BetaShares Global Energy Companies ETF (ASX: FUEL)

The first ETF for investors to look at is the BetaShares Global Energy Companies ETF. This ETF provides investors with an easy way to gain exposure to the energy sector, which is booming this year thanks to sky high oil prices. This is by allowing investors to own a slice of some of the biggest energy companies in the world.

BetaShares notes that these companies are larger, more geographically diversified, and more vertically integrated than Australian-listed energy companies. Among the fund’s holdings are the likes of BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil, Phillips 66, Royal Dutch Shell, and Total.

BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)

Another exchange traded fund which could be worth looking at is the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF. As you might have guessed from its name, this exchange traded fund gives investors access to the 100 largest (non-financial) businesses on Wall Street’s technology focused NASDAQ index.

Disappointingly, these shares (and therefore the ETF) have been absolutely smashed this year amid rising inflation and interest rates. However, this could be a fantastic long-term buying opportunity for investors. Particularly given how the shares included in the fund are many of the world’s greatest companies. These include Amazon, Apple, Alphabet, Facebook/Meta, Microsoft, Netflix, and Nvidia.
