In a series of points of view from EY Financial Services Organization (FSO) Consulting, we explore the impact of the metaverse and digital assets on the financial services industry. We’ll assess the impact of digital assets and how clients will seek the assistance of both traditional and crypto-native financial firms to harness these assets to create value and wealth. And we’ll connect the dots at the intersection of Web 3.0 and the metaverse. This first point of view serves as an introduction to the series.

Future articles in this series will include perspectives on the EY eight-dimension model of the metaverse, the disruption and opportunities created in the evolution of Web 3.0, and what financial life in the metaverse will look like, as well as a deep dive into specific opportunities and use cases in the financial services industry.
