The “metaverse” term, which originated in the 1992 science fiction novel Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson, relates to a network of 3D virtual worlds focused on social connection. It is reshaping sectors from advertising to working arrangements. Areas such as space flight, blockchain, e-gaming, virtual working, movies and retail, are all affected. Already, the working-from-home phenomenon caused by the pandemic has turned elements of fiction into hard reality. Online retail is also a major force, upending traditional bricks-and-mortar shopping models.


Pauline Llandric, AXA IM’s Tech Equity Specialist:

“We are at the early stages of a long-term trend which is growing rapidly and believe there is a broad range of global companies and opportunities in this space.  Revolutionary, cutting-edge advances in technology have changed how we live, socialise, work and do business. The Metaverse is the confluence of the virtual and physical worlds, where more technology is layered on to everyday life associated with the evolution of the internet connecting people, places and things.”


Terence Lam, Managing Director & Head of Client Group Core, Asia Pacific at AXA IM:

“Amid the current market environment, the Metaverse strategy may offer a source of long-term robust investment returns as the world embraces the enormous potential of the Metaverse and experiences the benefits it will bring across sectors.  This latest agreement underscores our success and established history in developing long-term and differentiated thematic investment strategies that meet the needs of investors globally.”
