With all of the volatility that ASX shares have experienced in recent months, it can be a bit off-putting choosing investments these days. That’s why taking a look at exchange-traded funds (ETFs) to add to one’s portfolio might be a good idea. ETFs are an easy way of investing in a whole basket of shares rather than just one individual company.

As such, they can be a useful way to gain exposure to specific markets or trends that might be more difficult to individually select shares in.

So here are two ASX ETFs that I think would be a worthy addition to any long-term ASX investor’s portfolio right now.

2 ASX ETFs that I would buy for 2022 and beyond

VanEck Video Gaming and Esports ETF (ASX: ESPO)

This ETF from provider VanEck is a relatively new one, having only started ASX life back in 2020. ESPO has struggled for most of its ASX life.

It remains down by an average of 6.71% per annum since its inception in September 2020, including by a painful 20% over the past 12 months. But I think it is very doubtful that the gaming and esports markets are going to stop growing anytime soon, given the popularity these pursuits have with younger generations.

Further, many of the companies that this ETF holds are of top-tier quality. They include names like NVIDIA, Activision Blizzard, Tencent Holdings and Nintendo. As such, I think this ETF would be a compelling choice for any investor with patience and a long-term horizon today.

BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)

Our second ETF to check out today is far broader.

NDQ is an index fund that covers the largest 100 companies on the US’s NASDAQ stock exchange. The NASDAQ typically houses the US’s newer, tech-focused shares.

As such, you’ll find most of the dominant tech titans like Apple, Amazon.com and Alphabet here, as well as other well-known household names like Adobe, Netflix and PayPay.

The BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF has a long history of delivering impressive performance figures. As of 30 June, it has averaged an annual return of 18.22% per annum over the past five years. That’s despite NDQ losing a painful 25.4% of its value over the first six months of 2022.

As such, this ETF could be another compelling buying opportunity today for an investor with a long-term horizon.
