Gen Y or millennials are recognised as the pivotal group in terms of making the most fundamental impact on the world over the next 20 years, as they tend to have higher incomes compared to the other generations. Asia, in particular, has more than one billion millennials or approximately 86 per cent of the world’s total Gen Y population.
