Tías PANK: sin hijos, gastan en sus sobrinos

Ana Alejandra Fuentes Cuiñas, a professor and researcher at UADE (Argentine University of the Enterprise) and her team studied the PANK concept in Buenos Aires and [in her words] "made a big research, mixing Psychology and Marketing (I have this two BA). This is the main newspaper or Argentina, we appeared at the front page on 27 of February."

[Chrome Translation]

"In 2013, the marketing PANK invented the acronym to refer to a new segment of consumers, arising from social changes: professional childless aunts (professional aunts no kids). Now, a survey outlined the profile of the Buenos Aires PANK : 72.8% are sisters of some parents, but there are also friends of the couple; 20% actively involved in raising their nephews , influencing parental decisions, and that dedication carries an average cost of 400 pesos per month on outputs and gifts. Annualized and converted to free dollar, that figure is $ 332, about US $ 385 spent by PANK aunts in America.
