If you’re looking for some new exchange traded funds (ETFs) to boost your portfolio with, then the three listed below could be worth considering right now.

Here’s why they could be quality long term options for investors:

BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)

The first ETF for investors to look at is the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF. This ETF provides investors with exposure to the leaders in the global cybersecurity sector. BetaShares notes that this is heavily under-represented on the ASX. Which is a shame given that it is a rapidly growing area of the market. Among the companies you’ll be owning a slice of are cyber security giants Accenture, Cloudflare, Crowdstrike, and Okta.

BetaShares Global Energy Companies ETF (ASX: FUEL)

Another ETF that could be in the buy zone is the BetaShares Global Energy Companies ETF. With oil prices on a tear this year, the companies included in this ETF could be well-placed to deliver bumper profits in the near term. The BetaShares Global Energy Companies ETF currently provides investors with access to many of the largest energy companies in the world such as BP, Chevron, ExxonMobil, and Royal Dutch Shell.

Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF (ASX: VGS)

A final ETF for investors to consider is the Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF. This very popular ETF provides investors with exposure to over 1,000 of the world’s largest listed companies from major developed countries. This means that through a single investment, investors are able to buy a slice of companies such as Apple, Johnson & Johnson, JP Morgan, Nestle, Procter & Gamble, and Visa. This makes it a great (and easy) way for investors to add some diversity to their portfolio.
