Investors know the NYSE as a home for the worlds most important blue chip stocks. Massive companies like Walmart, Berkshire Hathaway, Exxon Mobil, and Coca-Cola are listed on the exchange along with roughly 2,400 other companies, and together they add up to an astounding $20 trillion in value.

But how do other exchanges around the world, such as the ones in Toronto or London, compare to the famed NYSE?

Todays infographic comes to us , and it compares the 20 largest stock exchanges in the world in terms of market capitalization, total companies listed, and number of years since they were founded.

The Oldest Exchange:Of the top 20 stock exchanges on the above list, the oldest can be found in Frankfurt. Originally the location of medieval trade fairs in the 11th century, Frankfurt quickly became an important center for commercial and monetary transactions. The birth of the stock exchange is said to have happened in 1585 when fair merchants decided to establish fixed currency exchange rates.

The Most Listed Companies:Established in 1875, the Bombay Stock Exchange was actually Asias first stock exchange. It has 5,749 listed public companies, which is the most of any of the top 20 exchanges. The majority of companies listed on the BSE are smallcaps, with an average market capitalization of just US$292 million per company.

The Largest Market Cap:As mentioned before, the NYSE takes the cake here with close to $20 trillion in market capitalization. There is a steep drop-off after the NYSE, which is followed by NASDAQ ($7 trillion), London Stock Exchange ($6 trillion), Tokyo Stock Exchange ($4 trillion), Shanghai Stock Exhcange ($4 trillion), and Hong Kong Stock exchange ($3 trillion).

In fact, only 16 exchanges have market capitalizations over $1 trillion. Here are those visualized by market cap on a map from our previous infographic that showedall of the stock exchanges in the world.

Impressively, these 16 exchanges account for about 87% of total stock exchange market capitalization.

Which real estate markets have the highest risk of seeing a correction? These maps highlight housing bubble risks using data from four key indicators.

With a decade-long bull market and an ultra low interest rate environment globally, its not surprising to see capital flock to housing assets.

For many investors, real estate is considered as good of a place as any to park moneybut what happens when things get a little too frothy, and the fundamentals begin to slip away?

In recent years, experts have been closely watching several indicators that point to rising bubble risks in some housing markets. Further, they are also warning that countries like Canada and New Zealand may be overdue for a correction in housing prices.

Earlier this week, Bloomberg published results from a new study by economist Niraj Shah as he aimed to build ahousing bubble dashboard.

Ranking high on just one of these metrics is a warning sign for a countrys housing market, while ranking high on multiple measures signals even greater fragility.

Lets look at each bubble risk indicator, and see how they apply to the 22 countries covered by the housing dashboard.

It should be noted that most of the measures here are shown in an index form, using the year 2015 as a base year. In other words, the data is not representative of the ratio itselfbut instead, how much the ratio has risen or fallen since 2015.

When looking at housing prices in comparison to rents, there are four countries that stand out.

New Zealand (196.8) and Canada (195.9) have seen ratios of housing prices to rents nearly double since 2015. Meanwhile, Sweden (172.8) and Norway (168.2) are not far behind.

Elsewhere in the world, this ratio is much more in line with expectations. For example, in Portugalwhere house prices have skyrocketed over recent yearsrents have increased at nearly the same rate, giving the country a 99.2 score.

There are three familiar names at the top of this bubble indicator: New Zealand (156.8), Canada (155.3), and Sweden (145.7).

In places where rents are lagging housing prices, so are the levels of household income. For how long will people afford to buy increasingly expensive houses, if their incomes continue to lag?

Real house prices have increased in all of the 22 markets, with the exception of Italy (95.5).

For this indicator, there are five markets that stand out as having fast-rising prices: Portugal (131.8), Ireland (127.6), Netherlands (121.9), Canada (124.1), and New Zealand (121.9). The latter two (Canada/New Zealand) have appeared near the top of all three bubble indicators, so far.

Exceedingly high debt ratios point to a strain on consumer finances and when finances are strained, the chance of a default increases.

Switzerland (128.7%), Australia (120.3%), and Denmark (115.4%) top the list here with consumer debt far exceeding country GDP levels. However, Canada still makes an appearance in the top five with a debt-to-GDP ratio of 100.7%.

Each generation was shaped by unique circumstances, and these differences translate directly to the investing world as well.

Every generation thinks about investing a little differently.

This is partially due to the fact that each cohort finds itself on a distinct leg of lifes journey. While boomers focus on retirement, Gen Zers are thinking about education and careers. As a result, its not surprising to find that investment objectives can differ by age group.

However, there are other major reasons that contribute to each unique generational view. For example, what major world events shaped the mindset of each generation? Also, what role did culture play, and how do things like economic cycles factor in?

Todays infographic comes to us fromRaconteur, and it showcases some of the most significant differences in how generations think about investing.

Lets dive into some of the most interesting data:

The majority of millennials (66%) are confident about investment opportunities in the next 12 months. This drops down to 49% when boomers are asked the same question.

How did different generations of investors react to recent bouts ofvolatilityin the market?

In terms of investment knowledge, 42% of millennials considered themselves to be experts in the field. On the same question, only 23% of boomers could say the same.

Back when they were 27 years old, 45% of Gen Xers said their primary goal was to buy a home. Compare this to just 23% of millennials that consider a home to be their primary investment objective today.

The majority of millennials (66%) saw the ability to manage all aspects of personal finance, including investments, in the same app as being important. Only 35% of boomers agreed.

Similarly, 67% of millennials saw recommendations made by artificial intelligence as being a basic part of any investment platform. Both Gen Xers and Baby Boomers were more hesitant, with 30% seeing computer-based recommendations as being integral.

Millennials are twice as interested in ESG (environmental, social, and governance) investing, compared to their boomer counterparts. In fact, the majority of millennials (66%) choose funds according to ESG considerations.

While generations may have varying investment philosophies, they seem a little more in sync when it comes to having reasonsnotto invest.

There are some similarities in the data here for example, non-investors of all generations seem to have an equally tough time learning about investing, and similar proportions do not believe they have the funds to start investing.

On the flipside, it seems that millennials are more worried about their financial future, while simultaneously seeing a risk of losing everything stemming from investing.
