There are a lot of exchange traded funds (ETFs) out there for investors to choose from.

Three popular ETFs that you may want to look deeper into are listed below. Here’s what you need to know about them:

BetaShares Global Energy Companies ETF (ASX: FUEL)

The first ETF for investors to look at is the BetaShares Global Energy Companies ETF. With oil prices trading above US$80 per barrel, energy producers are generating significant free cash flow at present. This bodes well for the companies held by this ETF, which include the leading players in the energy sector. Among its holdings are the likes of BP, Chevron, ExxonMobil, and Royal Dutch Shell.

BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)

Another ETF that could be worth looking at is the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF. As its name implies, this exchange traded fund gives investors exposure to the 100 largest non-financial businesses on Wall Street’s famous NASDAQ index. This means that you will be owning a slice of tech giants such as Amazon, Apple, Alphabet, Facebook/Meta, Microsoft, Netflix, and Nvidia. And with the NASDAQ still down materially on a 12-month basis, now could be a good time to consider making a long term investment in this quality group of stocks.

Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF (ASX: VGS)

A final ETF for investors to consider buying is the Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF. This popular ETF give investors easy access to many of the world’s largest listed companies. This means that rather than just investing in the Australian market, investors can take part in the long term growth potential of international markets. Among the ~1,500 companies included in the ETF are Apple, Johnson & Johnson, JP Morgan, Nestle, and Visa.
