Baby boomers are currently the largest living adult generation in the US, with millennials closely behind, according to Pew Research. And, even if millennials do edge out boomers in size, they're unlikely to edge them out in spending power - Boomers' wealth is 12 times greater than millennials.
That's a compelling reason to get behind companies with high exposure to boomers, and the report breaks down companies by their exposure level in different sub-sectors. The sub-sectors range from wealth and asset management to senior living and healthcare.The goal is to illuminate "a diverse range of verticals for investors wishing to access the theme," Haim Israel, an equity strategist at BAML, wrote of the list.
