If you don’t have sufficient funds to build a truly diverse portfolio, a quick way to add some diversity is with exchange traded funds (ETFs). Through just a single investment, ETFs give investors exposure to whole indices, industries, and even themes.

There are a large number of ETFs for investors to choose from, but three that could be worth considering are listed below. Here’s what you need to know:

BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF (ASX: ASIA)

The BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF could be a great option for investors. This ETF gives investors exposure to a number of exciting tech shares in the Asian market. Among its holdings are the likes of ecommerce giant Alibaba, search engine company Baidu, and WeChat owner Tencent. With these companies revolutionising the lives of billions of people in the region, they look well-positioned for growth over the next decade and beyond.

BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)

Another ETF to consider is the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF. This extremely popular ETF provides investors with exposure to the 100 largest non-financial shares on the famous NASDAQ index. This means investors will be buying a slice of tech giants such as Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Netflix and Google parent, Alphabet. Given how these companies have the potential to grow at a quicker rate than the global economy over the next decade, this could lead to the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF providing stronger returns than the ASX 200.

VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF (ASX: MOAT)

A final ETF to consider is the VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF. This ETF gives investors exposure to a diversified portfolio of fairly valued companies with sustainable competitive advantages. At present, there are 49 stocks in its portfolio. This includes Amazon, Bank of America, Berkshire Hathaway, Intel, McDonalds, and Microsoft. Legendary investor Warren Buffett is a huge fan of companies with moats. So, if you’re aiming to invest like he does, this ETF could help you.
