These ETFs are popular for a reason…
The post 3 popular ETFs ASX investors need to know appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –
If you’re looking for an easy way to invest your hard-earned money, then exchange traded funds (ETFs) could be worth considering.
Rather than deciding on which individual shares you should put your funds into, ETFs allow you to invest in a large group of shares through just a single investment.
With that in mind, I have picked out three popular ETFs to get better acquainted with. They are as follows:
BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)
The first ETF to look at is the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF. This fund provides investors with exposure to the leaders in the global cybersecurity sector. This area is heavily under-represented on the ASX, which is a shame given how rapidly it is growing. Among the companies in the fund are cyber security giants Accenture, Cloudflare, Crowdstrike, and Okta.
BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)
Another ETF to consider is the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF. This ETF will give you exposure to the 100 largest non-financial shares on the famous NASDAQ stock exchange. Among the companies that you’ll be buying a slice of are tech giants such as Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Microsoft, to name a few. There are also non-tech stocks such as Pepsi, Starbucks and Tesla in the fund. Given the positive long term outlooks of these companies, the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF has been tipped to generate solid returns for investors.
VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF (ASX: ESPO)
A final ETF to look at is the VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF. This ETF gives investors exposure to the growing video gaming market. Among the companies included in the fund are hardware giant Nvidia and game developers Take-Two and Electronic Arts. VanEck highlights that these companies are in a position to benefit from the increasing popularity of video games and eSports.
