And it isn’t hard to see why. ETFs give investors easy access to a large and diverse number of different shares that they wouldn’t ordinarily have access to. This can be a great way to invest diversely on a limited budget or bolster an already sizeable portfolio.
With that in mind, listed below are three ETFs that could be worth looking at in 2022:
iShares Global Consumer Staples ETF (ASX: IXI)
The first ETF to look at is the iShares Global Consumer Staples ETF. This fund provides investors with access to a large number of global consumer staples companies that produce essential products such as food, tobacco, and household items. Because demand for these types of products is relatively consistent whatever happens in the global economy, this ETF could be suitable for investors that are looking for low risk options. Among its largest holdings are giants such as Coca-Cola, Nestle, PepsiCo, Procter & Gamble, Unilever, and Walmart.
iShares S&P 500 ETF (ASX: IVV)
Another ETF for investors to consider is the iShares S&P 500 ETF. This ETF gives investors exposure to the top 500 U.S. stocks. The ETF manager, BlackRock, believes this can be useful for investors seeking to diversify internationally. The fund manager also notes that it offers long-term growth opportunities for a portfolio. Among the companies included in the fund are Amazon, Apple, Disney, Facebook, JP Morgan, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, Tesla, and Visa.
Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF (ASX: VGS)
Finally, there’s the Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF. It is one of the most popular ETFs on the Australian share market and it isn’t surprising that this is the case. This ETF provides investors with exposure to over 1,500 of the world’s largest listed companies. This means through a single investment you’ll be owning a slice of companies such as Apple, Johnson & Johnson, Nestle, Procter & Gamble, and Visa.
