  1. Meaningful Brands can increase their Share of Wallet by seven times and on average gain 46% more Share of Wallet than less Meaningful Brands
  2. Top Meaningful Brands deliver marketing KPI outcomes that are double that of lower scoring brands
  3. Meaningful Brands outperform the stock market by 133%, with the top 25 scorers delivering an annual return of nearly 12% – 6.7 times that of the STOXX 1800 stock index

Meaningful Brands®– Havas’ metric of brand strength – is the first global study to show how our quality of life and wellbeing connects with brands at both a human and business level. It’s unique in both scale – 1,000 brands, 300,000 people, 34 countries – and scope (12 industries). The research covers all aspects of people’s lives, including the impact on our collective wellbeing (the role brands play in our communities and the communities we care about), in our personal wellbeing (self-esteem, healthy lifestyles, connectivity with friends and family, making our lives easier, fitness and happiness) and marketplace factors, which relate to product performance such as quality and price.
