Since 2006, Millward Brown has created an annual ranking of the world’s most valuable brands on behalf of its parent company, WPP. The BrandZ Top 100 Most Valuable Global Brands Ranking is different from other rankings because it integrates financial data with attitudinal survey data to identify the degree to which consumers’ beliefs about brands drive their purchase decisions. We call the attitudinal component the brand contribution. The higher the brand contribution, the greater the importance of the brand in driving financial value compared to other tangible and intangible business assets.
