If you’d like to make some global investments but aren’t sure which shares to buy, you could look at exchange traded funds (ETFs).

But which ETFs could be good options for investors wanting to invest globally?

Two high quality options that could help you achieve this investment goal are listed below. Here’s what you need to know about them:

Vanguard All-World ex-U.S. Shares Index ETF (ASX: VEU)

The first ASX ETF to look at is the Vanguard All-World ex-U.S. Shares Index ETF.

This ETF gives you access to approximately 3,500 companies listed in developed and emerging markets across the globe, excluding the United States.

The fund manager, Vanguard, also highlights that it gives investors access to many sectors that are not well represented in Australia. In fact, the Australian share market only accounts for approximately 5% of the portfolio. The largest country allocations are Japan, China, United Kingdom, France, and Canada.

Among this ASX ETF’s holdings you’ll find shares such as Royal Bank of Canada, AIA Group, HSBC Holdings, Samsung, LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, and Taiwan Semiconductor.

Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF (ASX: VGS)

Another ASX ETF for investors to look at for global investing is the Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF.

This ETF provides investors with exposure to approximately 1,500 of the world’s largest listed companies from major developed countries. And unlike the previous ETF, this includes the United States stock market.

Vanguard highlights that the ETF provides investors with low-cost access to a broadly diversified range of stocks that allows them to participate in the long-term growth potential of international economies.

Among the ETF’s largest holdings are household names such as Apple, Johnson & Johnson, Nestle, Procter & Gamble, and Visa.
