By working closely with governments, communities and conservation partners, Kenzo’s initiative aims to double the number of tigers in the wild by 2022, the next Chinese Year of the Tiger

Kenzo is partnering with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to support “Tx2”, a global commitment to protect the world’s wild tigers and double their numbers by the end of 2022.

As part of the partnership, Kenzo has launched a capsule collection dedicated exclusively to the big cats that serve as the brand’s mascot. For each item sold, Kenzo will donate US$10/£7.85 to WWF to contribute toward achieving the Tx2 goal. With this latest initiative, Kenzo remains faithful to its long-standing philosophy of celebrating the natural environment and contributing to its protection.

Wild tigers perfectly embody the founding principles behind the Kenzo brand – energy, power, nature as a key source of inspiration and the dynamic “Jungle Jap” spirit. … Read more

The global economy faces the sort of challenges it hasn’t had to endure for generations. The ongoing Covid-19 crisis is creating economic woes that could take donkey’s years to solve. It’s no wonder investor appetite for UK shares remains in the doldrums.

Global GDP will tank an eye-watering 4.5% in 2020, according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. This will be the biggest year-on year-drop since the Second World War.

A spiking Covid-19 infection rate in recent weeks, combined with more social restrictions across the globe, has started to dash some hopes of a robust economic rebound next year too, mine included.

It’s not a situation that’s dented my buying appetite for UK shares though. There are plenty of strategies that investors can take to reduce the risk in these uncertain economic times. Like choosing stocks with defensive or counter-cyclical operations.

Studies show UK share markets still deliver … Read more

Google’s search engine, one of the most-profitable businesses in history, is about to face its biggest challenge as the U.S. government readies an antitrust lawsuit accusing the company of crushing competition to protect and extend its monopoly.

After a 14-month investigation, the Justice Department is homing in on whether Google skews search results to favor its own products and whether it uses an iron fist over access to users to shut out rivals, according to people familiar with the matter.

Google, which controls about 90% of the online search market in the U.S., has long been a target of rivals that complain it’s used that power to snuff out competition across the internet. What started out as a college research project in the late 1990s now generates about $100 billion in highly-profitable revenue each year. The search engine decides the fates of thousands of businesses online and has funded Google’s … Read more

In this current business environment, things have changed. A lot of networking has gone virtual, meaning we are attending lots of Zoom meetings. I’ve kept up with most of my regular groups and I’ve added a few new ones where I’ve met some great people. In the new ones, I’ve started to build credibility and have some one-on-ones.

Many people are starting to not show up as often, though. It’s caused by Zoom fatigue and it’s real. Meeting online increases our cognitive load because we need to focus harder than in a live event. We have to pay attention to multiple people to get the most out of the meeting. You don’t get the physical signals you do when you’re meeting in person. It eats up a lot of conscious capacity to sit there and look at a screen of multiple people at the same time.
