With the metaverse yet to come into existence, there’s a lot of buzz around the concept, and some strong, existing companies are well positioned to define, build, and benefit from its development. In the fintech industry, traditional payment companies, often the end result of many M&A deals, face increasing pressure from newer, more innovative players, including non-listed competitors funded by venture capital and private equity with deep pockets.

In this webinar, Richard Speetjens, Head of Trends Investing and Portfolio Manager of Robeco Global Consumer Trends, and Patrick Lemmens, Portfolio Manager of Robeco FinTech, will review events from the past year and discuss what trends are likely to prevail in the future. They will examine what impact the metaverse can have on portfolios, and why fintech is increasingly about establishing the right connections.

At the end of the session, we will have covered:

  • The concepts behind the next generation of consumer and fintech buzzwords
  • How to separate metaverse fads from longer-term trends
  • How fintech trends such as embedded finance are leaving some companies behind

The live webinar will take place on Thursday 16 December at 15:00 GMT/ 16:00 CET.
