The World is Better Off Than You Think!

Happy New Year and welcome to 2019!

Last year was such a tumultuous one according to the media, it’s easy to get caught up in all the negative, and forget any positive advances we humans have made.

So, as we welcome in a new year today, we thought it would be beneficial to take a step back and find some good news to share with you.

You may not be aware that, in the past 25 years:

  • Two billion people moved out of extreme poverty*
  • Child (under 5) mortality rates fell by 53%*
  • Maternal mortality fell by 45%*
  • Incidence of HIV, malaria and TB all declined
  • Globally, life expectancy increased by 5 years*

And if that’s not enough to put a smile on your face – over this period, $1 invested in stocks grew five-fold! **

Happy New Year from everyone at Cambridge Partners.
