The post 2 highly rated ETFs for ASX investors appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –
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 Asia Technology Tigers ETF (ASX: ASIA)
If you want to gain exposure to the growing Asian economy, then the BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF could help you achieve it. This ETF gives investors a slice of a number of the most promising tech shares in the Asian market.
This means you’ll be owning well-known companies such as ecommerce giant Alibaba, search engine company Baidu, online retail platform Pinduoduo, and WeChat owner Tencent. These are some of the quickest growing tech companies in the region, with millions of active users and very bright growth prospects.
The index the fund tracks has generated a return of 26.3% per annum over the last five years. This would have turned a $10,000 investment five years ago into over $32,000 today.
BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)
A second 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, given how demand for cybersecurity services continues to increase due to the growing threat of cyberattacks.
You only need to ask Telstra Corporation Ltd (ASX: TLS) CEO, Andy Penn, about this. As my colleague covered here, Mr Penn has warned that the rise of more sophisticated supercomputers and artificial intelligence (AI) could be one of the greatest threats to Australia’s cybersecurity.
Included in the ETF are quality companies at the forefront of the industry such as Accenture, Cisco, Cloudflare, Crowdstrike, Fortinet, Okta, Splunk, and Zscaler.
Over the last five years, the index the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF tracks has delivered a return of 23% per annum. This would have turn a $10,000 investment five years ago into over $28,000 today.
