Are There Metaverse ETFs? Here Are Four Metaverse ETFs Available Right Now

As capital and media interest floods into Metaverse startups, investors are looking for ways to take a position in this virtual world. Financial firms that create exchange traded funds — or ETFs — are moving fast to fill that demand. In fact, some experts are saying that Metaverse ETFs will be the most popular fund themes of 2022, so expect more to hit the market soon.

Investors in Metaverse ETFs expect their funds to grow in a few near-term and long-term ways. First, just as makers of picks, shovels and blue jeans made money during the Gold Rush, these ETFs comprise many of the publicly traded companies that will provide the infrastructure — computer chips, hardware, software, etc. — for the Metaverse. The rationale is that if the Metaverse takes off, these companies will also receive a boost. Second, as Metaverse winners eventually grow from startups to public companies through IPOs and SPACs, investors in these ETFs will, no doubt, gain exposure to these companies as managers buy these stocks for their funds.

However, here are four of the leading Metaverse-themed ETFs that are available right now:
