If you’re looking for an easy way to invest in certain themes, then exchange traded funds (ETFs) could be the answer.

But which ETFs should you look at? Listed below are a couple of excellent ETFs that give investors access to exciting investment thematics.

Here’s what you need to know about them:

BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF (ASX: HACK)

The first ASX ETF for investors to consider is the BetaShares Global Cybersecurity ETF. This ETF gives investors exposure to the leading companies in the global cybersecurity sector.

This week the Optus cyberattack outlined just how important cybersecurity is for businesses and consumers. With sensitive information being accessed by hackers, Optus is facing major reputational damage, as well as potential penalties and compensation.

But Optus isn’t alone. This month Rockstar and Uber have also been hit by attacks and you can bet that countless smaller companies have also fallen victim to hackers as well.

In light of this, it wouldn’t be surprising if the already strong and growing demand for cybersecurity services went up a gear.

This bodes well for companies included in the fund such as Accenture, Cloudflare, Crowdstrike, Okta, and Palo Alto Networks.

VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF (ASX: ESPO)

Another ETF for ASX investors to look at is the VanEck Vectors Video Gaming and eSports ETF.

This ETF gives investors access to a portfolio of the largest companies involved in video game development, hardware, and esports.

This is a market that benefits from the billions of gamers globally that reach for their PlayStations, PCs, or mobile devices each day.

According to PwC’s Global Entertainment and Media Outlook, it expects the market to be worth US$321 billion by 2026. This is up from US$214 billion in 2021.

This is good news for the quality companies you’ll be owning with this ETF. This includes Activision Blizzard, AMD, Electronic Arts, Nintendo, Nvidia, Roblox, and Take-Two.
