ETF

I think exchange traded funds (ETFs) can be great additions to a balanced portfolio.

This is because they allow you to invest across a large and diverse number of shares through just a single investment.

But which ETFs should you buy today? Three of the best ETFs in my opinion are listed below. Here’s why I would buy them:

BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)

My favourite ETF is the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF. This ETF gives investors access to 100 of the biggest non-financial companies on the legendary Nasdaq index. These means investors will be getting a slice of a large number of tech giants such as Apple, Microsoft, and Netflix. Due to the positive outlooks of the majority of the companies in the ETF, I believe it can generate strong returns for investors over the next decade. Another positive is a recent pullback following a tech selloff on Wall Street. This gives investors an opportunity to buy in at a more attractive price.

BetaShares S&P/ASX Australian Technology ETF (ASX: ATEC)

Another option for investors to consider buying is the BetaShares S&P/ASX Australian Technology ETF. It is the Australian equivalent of the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF and a great option if you don’t already have exposure to the tech sector. Included in the fund are the likes of Afterpay Ltd (ASX: APT), Appen Ltd (ASX: APX), and Xero Limited (ASX: XRO). I believe this ETF has the potential to outperform the broader ASX 200 index by a decent margin over the long term.

iShares Global Healthcare ETF (ASX: IXJ)

A final option to consider is the iShares Global Healthcare ETF. This exchange traded fund gives investors a piece of some of the largest healthcare companies across the world. This includes giants such as CSL Ltd (ASX: CSL), Johnson & Johnson, Novartis, and Pfizer. Given the expected increase in demand for healthcare services over the next few decades, I believe it is a great place to invest with a long term view.
