Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are a great option for investors who don't like stock picking.

That's because they allow you to buy large groups of shares with a single click of the button (and a single brokerage fee).

But the positives don't stop there. Some ETFs have a long track record of delivering market-beating returns.

And while there is no guarantee that this will be the same in the future, the three ASX ETFs listed below appear well-placed to repeat their heroics. This could make them great options if you are looking to supercharge your investment portfolio.

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

BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)

When looking at ASX ETFs, it's impossible not to talk about the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF. This hugely popular fund provides investors with access to the absolute behemoths of our age.

The ETF holds the 100 largest non-financial companies on the famous Nasdaq index. These are the companies behind the search engines, spreadsheets, mobile phones, social media sites, streaming services, online stores, graphic cards, and electric vehicles we use daily.

Over the last 10 years, the index the fund tracks has delivered a return of 22.7% per annum.

VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF (ASX: MOAT)

Another ASX ETF that has delivered big returns for investors is the VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF.

This should come as no surprise given that this fund aims to invest in the type of companies that Warren Buffett would buy. And given how the Oracle of Omaha has smashed the market since the 1960s, clearly, his investment style is worthy of replicating.

This style focuses on companies with attractive valuations, strong business models, and sustainable competitive advantages.

The index it tracks has generated a total return of 17.74% per annum over the last 10 years.

BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)

A final ASX ETF that could supercharge your investment portfolio is the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF.

This fund gives investors access to the cybersecurity sector, which is growing rapidly due to the structural shift to the cloud and as cybercrime becomes ever more prevalent.

This rapid growth has put a rocket under many of the shares held by the fund. These are the leaders in the global cybersecurity market.

This has led to the ETF delivering an average return of approximately 17.5% per annum over the last five years.
