If you’re looking for an easy way to invest, then exchange traded funds (ETFs) could be worth considering. This is because rather than deciding on which individual shares you should buy, 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 that could be worth a closer look. They are as follows:

BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)

The first ETF for investors to look at is the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF. This fund provides investors with exposure to the leaders in the global cybersecurity sector. BetaShares notes that this fast-growing area of the market is heavily under-represented on the ASX. Among the companies you’ll be owning a slice of are cyber security giants Accenture, Cloudflare, Crowdstrike, and Okta.

iShares Global Consumer Staples ETF (ASX: IXI)

Another ETF to look at is the iShares Global Consumer Staples ETF. This fund gives investors exposure to many of the world’s largest global consumer staples companies. These are well-known companies such as Coca-Cola, Nestle, PepsiCo, Procter & Gamble, Unilever, and Walmart. Given how demand for these types of products is relatively consistent whatever the economy throws at them, this ETF could be suitable for investors that are looking for lower risk options.

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

A final ETF for investors to look at is the VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF. This ETF gives investors access to companies with exposure to the growing video game market. Among the shares included in the fund are hardware giant Nvidia and game developers Take-Two and Electronic Arts. VanEck notes that these companies are in a position to benefit from the increasing popularity of video games and eSports.
