#millennial

We celebrate World Population Day each year on July 11, and this year the global population stands at about 7.4 billion people. The Millennial generation—according to demographers at Pew Research Center, those born between roughly 1981 and 1997—accounts for 27 percent of the global population or about 2 billion people.

Currently between 19 and 35 years of age, Millennials are in their young adulthood and, as such, are fast becoming the world’s most important generational cohort for consumer spending growth, sourcing of employees, and overall economic prospects.
About 58 percent of global Millennials live in Asia, including a whopping 385 million in India—by far the largest domestic population of Millennials in the world, and accounting for 19 percent of the global generational cohort. The next largest regional concentration is in Sub-Saharan Africa, which accounts for about 13 percent of all Millennials. This is hardly surprising given that these two regions also have the greatest overall populations, but it does point to their continued importance to consumer spending and potential economic growth in the coming decades.

#SocialAnimal

In a world where people communicate directly and building own interest community via social media.
BankerStreet Private Equity has an opportunity to build trust and put a much-needed human face on the industry by creating, nurturing and extending people’s own social footprint.

The two companies in the lead are Tencent Holdings (NASDAQOTH:TCEHY), owner of WeChat, and Weibo (NASDAQ:WB); they have over 960 million and 360 million monthly users, respectively. Both are growing their numbers of network users by double digits. For investors not wanting to bet on the large field of international social-site options, the Global X Social Media Index ETF (NASDAQ:SOCL) might be a good choice.

#FutureFoods

Food retailing and production are changing around the globe. From how food is designed and where it’s grown, to how it’s consumed and who is consuming it, the food industry will soon look nothing like its former self. The outlook presented here points to more change in the food industry in the next 10 years than in the last 50.

Underlying these rapid changes are macro forces that influence the way the world produces, distributes, buys, sells, and consumes food. Global population growth, expected to exceed 20 percent, and the shift from rural to urban life will increase demands for future food-stocks and shorter, more efficient supply chains. In addition, wealth inequality continues to widen, creating disparities in access to healthy food amongst socioeconomic and income groups. Consumers will continue to seek ways to improve their diets to manage health and wellness, to counteract escalating obesity and non-communicable diseases. Food production will continue to be vulnerable to the impacts of rising global temperatures, with water stress and drought becoming more common. Advances in technology and open access to capital will fuel an explosion of business model innovation. New competitors will redefine consumers’ expectations, offer uniquely different value propositions, and rapidly disrupt global competitive landscapes.

Scaled-up investment in clean, resilient infrastructure

Current economic conditions – including low real interest rates in most countries – afford many governments the opportunity to invest in the right infrastructure now, to reignite growth while also paving the way to achieving the saving earth goals.

#Traditionalinvestment

In an economic sense, an investment is the purchase of goods that are not consumed today but are used in the future to create wealth. In finance, an investment is a monetary asset purchased with the idea that the asset will provide income in the future or will later be sold at a higher price for a profit.

The number of professionally managed fund in the financial market is increasing. The traditional investment funds are your shortest route to the world's financial markets. You can diversify your investment portfolio by making investments in low-risk bond and money market investment funds as well as in the dynamic stock markets of different countries, regions and economy sectors.

#Nature

Nature is all the animals, plants, and other things in the world that are not made by people, and all the events and processes that are not caused by people. The most important way of protecting nature is by protecting natural areas. Protecting natural areas also means protecting animal and plant species, the landscape and our opportunities for enjoying nature.

Every year, environmental risks such as indoor and outdoor air pollution, passive smoking, unsafe drinking water, poor sanitation and inadequate hygiene cause the deaths of nearly 1.7 million children under the age of five. A healthier environment –which include, amongst other things, safe drinking water and clean cooking fuel- could sharply reduce child mortality. To combat this phenomenon, it is necessary to improve access to safe drinking water, reduce indoor and outdoor pollution, improve sanitation and hygiene and protect our environment.
