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

But which ETFs should you look at? Here are two popular ETFs that have generated strong returns for investors:

BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF (ASX: ASIA)

The first ETF to look at is BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF. It allows investors to invest in the biggest and brightest technology and ecommerce companies that have their main area of business in Asia. BetaShares notes that this ETF provides diversified exposure to a high-growth sector that is under-represented in the Australian share market.

There are a total of 50 companies included within the ETF. Among these you will find industry giants such as Alibaba, Baidu, JD.com, and Tencent Holdings. The latter is the company behind the hugely popular WeChat app, which has over 1.2 billion users. It is also a substantial shareholder of Afterpay Ltd (ASX: APT).

Over the last 12 months, the BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF generated a return of 59% for investors.

BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)

Another ETF to look at is the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF. This ETF aims to track the performance of the NASDAQ 100. This comprises 100 of the largest non-financial companies listed on Wall Street’s famous exchange.

Among the 100 companies you will find tech giants such as Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, Netflix, and Google parent, Alphabet. In addition, investors will be gaining a slice of non-tech companies. This includes Gilead Sciences, Lululemon, Moderna, and Starbucks.

BetaShares thinks this ETF is a good option for investors as it has a strong focus on technology. It feels this gives investors diversified exposure to a high-growth potential sector that is under-represented in the Australian share market.

Since this time last year, the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF has provided a return of 24% for investors.
