Since its inception three-and-a-half decades ago, the FTSE 250 index has been a fantastic investment. Investors who bought the index at inception would have seen a 12% total annual return on their money. The question is, can this continue? Is the FTSE 250 your route to riches in future?Route to riches?The FTSE 100 is made up of the largest 100 companies listed on the London Stock Exchange. The FTSE 250, meanwhile, is made up of the 101st to 350th companies. The index that covers both the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 is the FTSE 350. The next most extensive index is the FTSE All-Share. This is an index of the top 600 companies traded on the London Stock Exchange.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…As a market-weighted stock index, the largest companies in the FTSE 250 have a disproportionate impact on performance. This tends to mean the most successful businesses float to the top while struggling companies sink to the bottom.Moreover, unlike the FTSE 100, which is really an international index because more than 70% of its profits come from outside the UK, the FTSE 250 has a more domestic focus.So the index’s performance is linked to that of the UK economy. This means the FTSE 250 is a bit more volatile than the FTSE 100. However, it’s essential to remember these are some of the fastest-growing companies in Britain. They tend to own world-class technology and international divisions.For example, the two largest companies in the FTSE 250 right now are GVC Holdings and Intermediate Capital. These two have achieved earnings growth rates of 40% and 5% per annum respectively over the past six years.Growth indexThe index’s substantial weighting towards growth stocks gives it a natural advantage. Trying to pick a market best-growth stock can be a tricky business. Even the professionals struggle to outperform the market consistently over the long term.The FTSE 250 is continuously updating itself to include the fastest growing companies and exclude those businesses that are struggling. It’s similar to an active investment strategy, but it’s much cheaper and easier for investors to follow.This is the main reason why the FTSE 250 has achieved such fantastic returns since its inception. No active manager is trying to second-guess the market. The index just selects the best stocks and then hold on to them until it no longer needs them.Therefore, if you’re looking for one investment that could help you build a sizable nest egg, the FTSE 250 seems to tick all the boxes. While we don’t know what sort of returns the index will produce over the next two or three years, its focus on UK growth champions suggests that, over the long term, investors will continue to be well rewarded.All in all, if you can take a longer-term view, and you’re willing to invest in growth stocks, the FTSE 250 could be your route to riches.

As the traditional role between men and women become blurred in modern society, the privacy at home and the basic nature of spaces in the house is being changed. Even the privacy among family members that had been overlooked in the past patriarchal era with a large family is now the most basic thing to insure, especially among married couples. The economic independence of women through increased participation in society plays a role in this. As a result, the kitchen has turned into a café-like space with a large table out of its traditional function of producing the food. It is also a wine bar for the soon-to-be married couple to stop by after work.Save this picture!© Hyosook ChinMost tiny houses in Korea are normally very complicated inside without a sense of openness as they try to accommodate many things, but Malefemale house tries to satisfy the function and structure, practicality and openness, simplicity and novelty at the same time only through the staircase, the indispensable architectural element. The stair penetrates the house in the center, separating each floor into the living area to the south and into service areas of bathrooms and closets to the north, and by using the bathroom as corridor it forms an 8-character circular movement on each floor. These simple yet functional movements make the experience of space even richer.Save this picture!© Jaewon SuhSave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© Jaewon SuhLiving room on the 2nd floor and bedroom on the 3rd loosen the privacy between them because they have the same area and type, however, with independent toilet on each, the living room is again implicitly occupied by men and the bedroom by women. Blue-green marble wall in the living room and red wooden wall in the bedroom are materials that represent such properties both typically and symbolically. The symmetry of interior space reveals the faces of different genders to the north and the south and the figure, as if it were a miniature of a Baroque Cathedral in a souvenir shop, creates quite a cute feeling due to its mismatch of style and building scale.Project gallerySee allShow lessCity Dreamers Documentary Highlights Four Women Architects Who Rethought the CityArchitecture NewsHouse Challenge 2019 Explores Temporary Dwellings in the DesertArchitecture News Share Photographs South Korea ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/931152/malefemale-house-aoa-architects Clipboard Malefemale House / aoa architectsSave this projectSaveMalefemale House / aoa architects “COPY” Area: 109 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily Photographs: Hyosook Chin, Jaewon Suh Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/931152/malefemale-house-aoa-architects Clipboard Jaewon Suh, Euihaing Lee “COPY” CopyHouses•Seodaemun-gu, South Korea Architects: aoa architects Area Area of this architecture project Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Chaos Group, Adobe, Clay Max, Hanvit Terrazzo, McNeel, Parex Dpr, Salamander, Total Marble, dbdb studio Year: Lead Architects: 2018 CopyAbout this officeaoa architectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSeodaemun-guOn FacebookSouth KoreaPublished on January 01, 2020Cite: “Malefemale House / aoa architects” 01 Jan 2020.
