Are you interested in boosting your portfolio with some exchange traded funds (ETFs)?

If you are, then you may want to look at these highly rated ETFs listed below. Here’s what you need to know about them:

BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)

The first ASX ETF to look at is the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF. As it names implies, this ETF gives investors exposure to the leading companies in the global cybersecurity sector. This could be a great place to invest, particularly given the growing threat of cyberattacks.

With this threat not going away any time soon, demand for cybersecurity services and solutions is tipped to increase materially over the 2020s. This appears to have positioned many of the companies in the fund perfectly for strong growth over the long term.

Included in the ETF are quality companies at the forefront of the industry such as Accenture, Cisco, Cloudflare, Fortinet, Okta, Splunk, Zscaler, and Crowdstrike.

In respect to the latter, CrowdStrike is a provider of incident response and forensic analysis services via its Falcon platform. Its services are designed to help businesses understand whether a breach has occurred. It then allows the user to respond and recover from a breach with speed and precision to remediate the threat.

iShares S&P 500 ETF (ASX: IVV)

Another ETF for investors to look at is the iShares S&P 500 ETF. It aims to provide investors with the performance of the famous S&P 500 Index, before fees and expenses. This index has been designed to measure the performance of large capitalisation US equities.

BlackRock, which runs the ETF, notes that it gives investors exposure to the top 500 U.S. stocks through a single investment. The fund manager believes this can be used by Aussie investors to diversify internationally and seek long-term growth opportunities for a portfolio.

Unlike the other ETF, the companies in this fund need no introduction. Among the ETF’s largest holdings are the likes of Amazon, Apple, Berkshire Hathaway, Facebook, JP Morgan, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, and Tesla.
