If you’re looking for an easy way to invest in international shares for diversification, then exchange traded funds (ETFs) could be the answer.

This is because ETFs give investors access to a collection of shares from certain indices, industries, sectors, or themes through just a single investment.

But which ETFs should investors be looking at right now? Listed below are two exciting ETFs that could be worth getting better acquainted with:

BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)

The first ASX ETF to look at is the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF. As it names indicates, this ETF gives investors exposure to the leading companies in the global cybersecurity sector.

This is a sector that has been tipped to grow strongly over the next decade due to the ongoing shift to the cloud and the increasing threat of cyber attacks. Among the companies you’ll be buying a slice of are cybersecurity leaders Accenture, Cisco, Cloudflare, Crowdstrike, Okta, and Splunk.

Over the last five years, the index the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF tracks has delivered a return of 23.7% per annum. This would have turned a $10,000 investment in 2016 into almost $29,000.

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

Another exciting ETF for ASX investors to look at is the VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF. This ETF gives investors access to a portfolio of the largest companies involved in video game development, hardware, and esports.

This means you’ll be owning shares in companies such as Nvidia, Take-Two, and Electronic Arts. These companies are well-positioned to benefit from the increasing popularity of video games and eSports.

The index the VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF tracks has generated an average return of 32.7% per annum over the last five years. This would have turned a $10,000 investment five years ago into just over $41,000 today.
