STOXX Global Metaverse

Index Description

Metaverse is an emerging concept that simulates the real world or imagines a world beyond it, integrating digital and physical interactions for an immersive experience. The STOXX Global Metaverse Index selects companies exposed to a defined set of technologies related to the ongoing adoption of the metaverse, ranging from those developing interactive virtual platforms, wearables and immersive technologies, to companies providing computer processing capabilities and infrastructure. STOXX uses EconSight's patent data, including patent Quality and Specialization scores, to identify companies that are market leaders and innovators in the identified technologies. The index takes ESG considerations into account: companies that are non-compliant with the Global Standards Screening (GSS) or are involved in Controversial Weapons activities, or display a Severe (Category 5) Controversy Rating, as identified by Sustainalytics, are excluded. Additional exclusion filters are incorporated, screening companies for involvement in Weapons (Small Arms and Military Contracting), Unconventional Oil & Gas (Arctic Oil and Gas Exploration, Oil Sands and Shale Energy), Conventional Oil & Gas, Thermal Coal, Nuclear Power and Tobacco.

Key facts

  • Index allows targeted investment in the emerging Metaverse trend
  • EconSight's patent taxonomy, quality and specialization scores are used to identify key and innovative players
  • Inclusion of size and liquidity filters to ensure replicability of the index
  • Leveraging sustainability data from a leading provider (Sustainalytics) to avoid exposure to companies engaged in controversial activities

Performance and annual returns


A set of country, size and liquidity screens are applied on the STOXX Global Total Market Index to capture liquid companies from developed and emerging countries. Additionally, companies that are not compliant with the Sustainalytics Global Standards Screening (GSS) assessment or are involved in Controversial Weapons and other controversial activities are excluded from selection.

EconSight's patent classification system is used to identify companies exposed to a defined set of technologies related to the ongoing adoption of the metaverse: 3D image modelling, Avatar, Blockchain, Digital Twin, Graphic Processing Unit, Non-Fungible Tokens and Virtual, Augmented and Extended Reality. The index is reviewed annually in March and weighted according to adjusted equal weights and adjusted by the metaverse patent specialization score. UCITS (4.5/8/35) is applied to ensure diversification. Furthermore, companies are assessed for any GSS, Controversies or UCITS violations on a quarterly basis.
