Are you looking for some ASX exchange-traded funds (ETFs) to buy and hold?

If you are, then it could be worth checking out the five high-quality ASX ETFs listed below.

Let's see what they offer investors:

BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF (ASX: ASIA)

The first ASX ETF that could be a top buy and hold option is the BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF. This popular ETF gives investors access to the best tech stocks in the Asian region but excluding Japan. Many of these are the region's equivalents of the West's biggest and best tech giants. Among its holdings are e-commerce leader Alibaba, search engine giant Baidu, iPhone manufacturer Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, and WeChat owner Tencent.

iShares Global Consumer Staples ETF (ASX: IXI)

Another ASX ETF for investors to look at is the iShares Global Consumer Staples ETF. It could be a good option for investors that have a low tolerance for risk. That's because this fund gives investors access to many of the world's largest consumer staples companies. These are companies that usually perform well whatever is happening in the global economy. Among its holdings are behemoths such as Coca-Cola, Nestle, and Unilever.

iShares S&P 500 ETF (ASX: IVV)

A third ASX ETF for investors to look at is the iShares S&P 500 ETF. It could be a good buy and hold option given the sheer quality among its holdings. These are the 500 largest companies on Wall Street. This means that you will be investing in a diverse group of shares from a range of different sectors, including countless household names such as Microsoft, Exxon Mobil, Johnson & Johnson, and Visa.

Vanguard Australian Shares Index ETF (ASX: VAS)

Another ASX ETF that could be a great buy and hold option is the Vanguard Australian Shares Index ETF. This fund aims to track the local ASX 300 index. It is home to Australia's leading 300 listed companies. This includes shares such as BHP Group Ltd (ASX: BHP), Macquarie Group Ltd (ASX: MQG), Northern Star Resources Ltd (ASX: NST), and Wesfarmers Ltd (ASX: WES).

Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF (ASX: VGS)

A final ASX ETF to consider for a buy and hold investment is the Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF. This very popular ETF gives investors access to a massive ~1,500 of the world's largest listed companies through a single investment. This could make it a great option if you're looking to diversify your portfolio. It also gives investors exposure to global economic growth.
