Exchange traded funds (ETFs) can be great additions to an investment portfolio.

This is because they give investors easy access to a large and diverse number of different shares that they wouldn’t ordinarily have access to.

But which ones would be top options for investors today? Listed below are three that could be worth considering:

BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF (ASX: ASIA)

The first ETF to look at is the BetaShares Asia Technology Tigers ETF. It tracks the performance of the 50 largest technology companies that have their main area of business in Asia (excluding Japan). This includes the likes of Alibaba, JD.com, Pinduoduo, Samsung, Taiwan Semiconductor, and Tencent Holdings. As these companies are revolutionising the lives of billions of people in the region, they have been tipped to have bright futures.

BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)

The next ETF for investors to consider is, in many respects, the US equivalent of the above ETF. The hugely popular BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF gives investors exposure to many of the most iconic companies in the world. This includes tech giants such as Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Netflix, and Tesla. BetaShares notes that with its strong focus on technology, the ETF provides diversified exposure to a high-growth potential sector that is under-represented on the Australian share market.

iShares Global Consumer Staples ETF (ASX: IXI)

If you would rather add some defensive stocks to your portfolio, then the iShares Global Consumer Staples ETF could be for you. This ETF gives investors access to many of the world’s largest global consumer staples companies. This includes giants such as Coca-Cola, Nestle, PepsiCo, Procter & Gamble, Unilever, and Walmart. As these companies manufacture and/or sell products that are always in demand whatever is happening in the economy, they appear well-placed in the current economic environment.
