Reaching Affluent Millennials

Everyone is trying to target millennials, but with almost 950m of them, is your advertising reaching the right ones?

In our award-winning study 'Reaching Affluent Millennials', we surveyed 16-34 year olds in over 30 countries, segmenting the most affluent and identifying a powerful subset - ‘The Supercharged’. With a stronger emotional connection to brands and a more global perspective than other millennials, they are both commercially receptive and big news consumers, turning to trusted brands, like the BBC, to help them make sense of the world.

Reaching Affluent Millennials was named 'Customer Insight Strategy of the Year' at the Drum Marketing Awards in May 2017.

Understanding 'The Supercharged'

The perception of millennials as an homogeneous group doesn’t match reality. Affluent millennials should be considered the ‘real’ millennials and their unique relationship with money and the environment is having a major impact on their relationship with brands. Take a look at our infographic and videos or download the PDF to discover how this influential group and its most valuable subset 'The Supercharged' actually think and act.
