Fidelity Investments is launching four new exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that focus on three developing investment movements, including the Metaverse, cryptocurrencies, and Environmental, Social, and governance, also known as (ESG).

The funds include Fidelity Metaverse EFT (FMET), the Fidelity Sustainable Low Duration Bond ETF (FSLD), and the Fidelity Sustainable Core Plus Bond ETF (FSBD). Also on the list is Fidelity Crypto Industry and Digital Payments ETF (FDIG). With this launch, Fidelity aims at offering 51 ETFs with over $33 billion in assets under its management.

However, the Fidelity Crypto Industry and Digital Payments ETF (FDIG) states that it won’t offer direct exposure to cryptocurrencies available in crypto lists. Instead, it will invest in companies that support the broader digital assets ecosystem. There are also new funds for individual investors and financial advisers can access commission-free. The funds can be accessed through Fidelity’s online brokerage platforms.


The fund seeks to provide a return on investment equivalent to the fees and expenses typical of the Fidelity Metaverse Index. Fidelity’s goal is to invest at least 80% of its assets in securities in each of the four brands.

The Metaverse Fidelity Index is designed to show the performance of a world’s companies that create, dispense and sell services or products related to the Metaverse. The future state of the Internet, the Metaverse, is characterized by a network of augmented reality and virtual worlds that multiple users can experience continuously and in a shared environment.

By investing in FSLD and FSBD, fidelity seeks high current income levels. Typically, the funds are invested in all forms of debt securities that are likely to have a positive ESG. These also include repurchase agreements for these securities.

In FDIG, the investment reflects the performance of companies involved in the crypto industry and its blockchain technology. Digital payment processing is also not left behind.

Similar Ideas by Fidelity

As fidelity encourages this revolutionary to democratize exchange-traded funds investments, it has shown interest in investing in Bitcoin ETF in the USA. However, the US financial regulators have yet to decide about this idea, which has delayed the fulfillment of this objective. As a result, funds to be launched in other countries with far fewer difficulties.

For Instance, Fidelity has just launched exchange-traded funds in Canada successfully. On the other hand, Australia will also receive two Bitcoin Spot ETFs that have gained launching approval.

What about the spread on FMET?

Fidelity’s Metaverse ETF got a fairly high spread between buying and selling, 0.29% in average. The gross expense ratio for FMET is 0.39. Since the fund only been live for a few days, there is no statistics about the performance and holdings yet. But for comparison, Fidelity mention that the market is down 4.73% the last month and the asset class median gives 4.82% return during the last year.

What is in Fidelity’s Metaverse portfolio?

Currently, there are no data about the main cryptocurrency holdings for any of the crypto EFT’s from Fidelity Investments. However, when looking on market cap, it’s highly likely that Apecoin (APE), Decentraland (MANA), The Sandbox (SAND) and Axie Infinity (AXS) is inclued. Crypto Lists also guess that Render Token (RNDR), SushiSwap (SUSHI) and Enjin Coin (ENJ) could be included in the Metaverse Index portfolio.

Entering a world of Competition

Fidelity is entering a very crowded territory where a dozen ETFs continue to trade the request. In addition to that, numerous enterprises have decided to launch “thematic” finances for the youngish generation.

In his statement, Greg Friedman, the principal of ETF Operation and Strategy, said they could see the demand for access to the fast-developing diligence in the digital ecosystem, especially from younger investors. The statement also adds that the move to launch the ETFs will provide these people with the appropriate vehicle to achieve their goals.

Fidelity could face tough competition when it comes to the thematic terrain, with many enterprises formerly operating within the space. The establishment’s size and scale are still likely to give it an edge over its immediate challenges. Experienced ETF critic Eric Balchunas also tweeted that the investment establishment has reportedly entered the request with the smallest figure among the four other ETFs tracking the Metaverse.

Fidelity also lately launched a Decentraland metaverse known as Fidelity Stack, whose objective is to comprehensively educate retail investors about investment basics. Reuters claim that it’s primary an effort to find young investors, something that Fidelity don’t have enough of at the moment.

    ApeCoin price volatility after Yuga Lab's virtual land saleApeCoin price volatility after Yuga Lab's virtual land sale
    Thursday, 5 May 2022 3:17 pm
    ApeCoin faces a significant stumble upon its role in the Bored Ape Yacht Club metaverse NFT land sale. Yuga Labs, the creator of the Bored Ape, received over $320 million in selling Otherdeeds. These were virtual land deed NFTs for its highly anticipated project Otherside. Increased demand for the NFTs on Ethereum blockchain led to a congestion of the network. The congestion created overinflated transaction fees with reports of transaction fees being over 100 times more than the cost of the NFT. Due to the high demand for virtual land deeds, some transactions were not complete. YugaLabs assured such users receive refunds for the transaction fee incurred. Users required ApeCoin to purchase the Otherdeeds, even if ETH can be used on Opensea as well. The virtual plot of Otherdeeds traded for 305 ApeCoins (about...
