Fidelity attracts investors through the metaverse

Published

on

Retail brokerage giant Fidelity Investments said on Thursday it opened a virtual eight-story building in the metaverse that offers financial education and dancing as it tries to attract more young investors to its platforms.

Fidelity Stack was timed to launch at the same time as the brokerage’s Fidelity Metaverse ETF

The brokerage’s Fidelity Stack ETF, which allows clients to invest in businesses active in the metaverse, a network of virtual worlds accessed via various devices where users may work, socialize, and play, was timed to launch at the same time as the Fidelity Metaverse ETF.

According to David Dintenfass, chief marketing officer and head of emerging customers at Fidelity, the Fidelity Stack, which was built in Decentraland, a web platform that mimics a metropolitan area with commerce districts, offices, and event spaces, is open to all but is primarily aimed at 18-35 year-olds.

“We’re trying to make sure we’re staying current for the next generation,” he said in an interview. Investors aged 18 to 35 established 3.8 million new Fidelity brokerage accounts in 2021, and the business has made an effort to communicate with them, including with its own Reddit sub-thread and TikTok account.

Fidelity launched a brokerage account designed exclusively for teens, supervised by their parents

Fidelity Investments, based in Boston, established a brokerage account for minors overseen by their parents in May, and roughly 60,000 accounts have been opened so far, according to Dintenfass. “Learning by doing,” he remarked, “is consistent with the metaverse.” “This is the next phase in a lengthy series of efforts to reach out to the next generation.”

The Fidelity Stack allows users to explore the building’s interior, which includes a dance floor and a rooftop sky garden, while also learning the principles of ETF investing and collecting “orbs” along the way, according to the business. Dintenfass wouldn’t specify how much Fidelity paid for the Decentraland virtual space.

Sony’s PlayStation 5 allows the firm to become a metaverse gaming gatekeeper

Sony is a gaming gatekeeper with its PlayStation 5 console, but observers warn that the emergence of cross-platform, cloud-based games, and their propensity to erode proprietary platforms’ authority, poses a threat.

In 2018, Sony revised their policy and allowed cross-play in Fortnite. In-game “V-Bucks” purchased on PlayStation will be transferable to other platforms, according to Epic.

“PlayStation has played a huge role in the social gaming revolution that’s fueling the rise of the metaverse as a new entertainment medium,” Epic CEO Tim Sweeney wrote on Twitter.

With the acquisition of Bungie, the creator of the online multiplayer shooter “Destiny,” Sony has made steps to diversify its portfolio beyond single-player games like “Spider-Man: Miles Morales.” The agreement was made public in January.

“We expect it to be a catalyst for us to strengthen our live service game capabilities… Yoshida stated, “(It) represents a huge step toward becoming multiplatform.” Beyond the metaverse, Yoshida is seeking to strengthen Sony’s position in the mobility sector, with the corporation collaborating on an electric vehicle with Honda Motor Co. Ltd.
