A new month is just around the corner, so what better time to make some new portfolio additions.

If you are looking to add some exchange traded funds (ETFs) to your portfolio in May, then you may want to take a look at the three ETFs listed below.

Here's what you need to know about these highly rated ETFs:

BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)

The BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF could be another ETF for investors to consider in May. This very popular ETF gives investors access to the 100 largest non-financial shares on the famous NASDAQ index. These are many of the largest and highest quality companies in the world such as Amazon, Alphabet, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Netflix, Nvidia, and Tesla.

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

Another ETF for investors to look at next month is the VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF. This popular ETF gives investors access to a global video game market that is estimated to comprise almost 3 billion active gamers and growing. This huge and growing market bodes well for the companies held by the fund, which include gaming giants such as Electronic Arts, Nintendo, Roblox, and Take-Two.

Vanguard All-World ex-U.S. Shares Index ETF (ASX: VEU)

A third and final ETF to consider for next month is the Vanguard All-World ex-U.S. Shares Index ETF. This ETF provides investors with access to over 3,000 companies listed in developed and emerging markets across the globe (excluding the United States). Vanguard highlights that this allows Australian investors to expand their portfolio to include many sectors that are not well represented in Australia. Among the ETF's holdings you'll find the likes of Astra Zeneca, HSBC Holdings, LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, Samsung, Taiwan Semiconductor, and Tencent.
