What's really on the minds of Millennials?

Lazy. Entitled. Digitally obsessed. Our research shatters these stereotypes about Millennials and arrives at some counterintuitive insights.

  • Millennials invest more like their grandparents’ generation, largely due to having lived through economic volatility not seen since the Great Depression.
  • Volatility has made them savers, not investors, holding nearly twice as much in cash as any other generation.
  • Still, they are optimistic about achieving their financial goals. They just don’t fully believe that long-term investing will get them there, having witnessed market volatility disrupt their parents’ lives.
  • Next Gen investors are seeking advice to help them overcome their concerns because they know they should plan better for the future.
