If you’d like to make some investments but aren’t sure which shares to buy, you could look at exchange traded funds (ETFs) instead. This increasingly popular asset class allows you to invest in large groups of shares from particular indices or sectors through a single investment.

But which ETFs could be in the buy zone? Two that are very popular are listed below. Here’s what you need to know about them:

BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF (ASX: ASIA)

The first ETF for investors to look at is the BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF. This ETF tracks the performance of an index comprising around 50 of the biggest and brightest technology shares in Asia.

These are the tigers of the Asian economy and include the likes of Alibaba, Baidu, JD.com, Pinduoduo, Samsung, Taiwan Semiconductor, and Tencent.

As the Asian tech sector is expected to remain a growth sector for some time to come, this could make the BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF a great option for long-term focused investors. Particularly after recent weakness dragged many of these companies (and therefore the ETF) down materially from their highs.

VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF (ASX: MOAT)

Another ETF that investors might want to look at is the VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF, especially if you’re after high quality and defensive companies to invest in.

That’s because this ETF aims to invest in a collection of companies that are deemed to be fairly valued and have sustainable competitive advantages or moats (hence the ETF’s name).

The VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF also has around 50 shares among its holdings. These include Adobe, Amazon, Boeing, Campbell Soup, Constellation Brands, Lockheed Martin, Microsoft, Walt Disney, and Wells Fargo.
