Exchange traded funds (ETFs) continue to grow in popularity with Australian investors.

In fact, local investors are now estimated to have invested a whopping $100 billion into them, according to the AFR.

And it isn’t hard to see why. Through a single investment, ETFs allow investors to invest in a large number of shares that they wouldn’t ordinarily have access to.

But which ETFs should you add to your portfolio? Two quality options to consider are listed below:

BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF (ASX: ASIA)

The first ETF to look at is the BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF. This popular ETF gives investors exposure to a number of the biggest tech shares in the Asia market.

This is certainly a great space to be in. Technological adoption in Asia is surpassing the West and is expected to underpin strong growth over the next decade.

The BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF is currently invested in a total of 50 companies. This includes Alibaba, Baidu, JD.com, NetEase, and Tencent.

The latter is a multinational technology conglomerate and one of the largest companies in the world. Its communication and social platforms, Weixin (WeChat) and QQ, connect over a billion users with each other and with digital content and services.

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

Another ETF to consider is the VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF. This ETF gives investors exposure to a portfolio of the largest companies involved in video game development, eSports, and related hardware and software globally.

VanEck notes that these companies are in a position to benefit from the increasing popularity of video games and eSports. Furthermore, it notes that the fund gives investors the option to diversify their portfolio by providing opportunities away from tech giants Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Google and Microsoft.

Among its holdings are graphics processing units (GPU) producer Nvidia, games developer Take-Two Interactive (GTA, Red Dead), Electronic Arts (FIFA, Sims, Apex Legends), and Activision Blizzard (Call of Duty).
