Last year the Oxford English Dictionary added words like "allyship", "defunding," and "chopsing" to its lexicon. One word sure to make its next update is "metaverse", following Facebook's rebrand last year.

In the above video, Morningstar Italy senior editor Valerio Baselli asks Robeco Global Consumer Trends portfolio manager Jack Neele for his views on the topic.
