Case for our Metaverse ETF

Pure play approach

The Metaverse ETF focuses predominantly on companies that operate in the Metaverse industry including augmented/virtual reality, creator economy, digital infrastructure, digital marketplace, gaming industry and digital payments.

An efficient way to invest in the industry of the future Metaverse

Morgan Stanley sees Metaverse-related businesses combined creating an $8.3 trillion opportunity in the United States alone.

Emerging Industry

Designed for investors wanting to benefit from a nascent industry in its early development stages with expected wide-scale, long-term investment opportunities in the infrastructure and services comprising the Metaverse.

Case for Mexican Sovereign Bonds

Simplicity

Unlike individual bonds with limited lifetimes, most fixed income ETFs do not have maturity dates. This simplifies portfolio management for investors, reducing the need to worry about replacing maturing bonds with newer issues.

Why Mexico

Mexico is well positioned macroeconomically relative to other LATAM countries, having one of the lowest debt/gdp ratios and more fiscal space in the region.

Liquidity

Mexican Government debt is one of the most actively traded in the market, given Mexico’s investment grade status, open economy, and position as one of the largest emerging market economies.
