If you’re looking for an easy way to invest your hard-earned money, then exchange traded funds (ETFs) could be worth considering.
This is because rather than deciding on which individual shares to put your money into, ETFs let you invest in a large group of shares through just a single investment.
With that in mind, here are three ETFs that are popular with investors right now:
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 largest technology shares in Asia (excluding Japan). BetaShares notes that the sector is expected to remain a growth sector for some time to come thanks to the region’s younger and more tech savvy population. Among the ETF’s holdings are Alibaba, Baidu, JD.com, Pinduoduo, Samsung, Taiwan Semiconductor, and Tencent. Regulatory concerns have been weighing heavily on these shares and therefore the ETF this year. While this is disappointing, it could have created a very attractive opening for long term investors.
BetaShares Crypto Innovators ETF (ASX: CRYP)
Another ETF for investors to look at is the BetaShares Crypto Innovators ETF. BetaShares highlights that this ETF provides “picks and shovels” exposure to the crypto market with investments in companies building crypto mining equipment, crypto trading venues, and other key services. At present, the ETF is invested in around 40 crypto focused companies including Coinbase, Riot Blockchain, and Microstrategy. In addition, the ETF owns shares with indirect exposure such as Block/Square, PayPal, and Robinhood.
VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF (ASX: ESPO)
A final ETF for ASX investors to look at is the VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF. The fund manager, VanEck, notes that this ETF gives investors exposure to the biggest players in a global video game market benefitting from an estimated 2.7 billion active gamers globally. Among the companies included in the fund are AMD, Electronic Arts, Nintendo, Nvidia, Roblox, and Take-Two. VanEck believes these companies are well-placed for growth thanks to the increasing popularity of video games and eSports.
