Coming of age in a period of economic uncertainty, Millennials have been stereotyped as recent college grads who can’t find meaningful work. But the truth about the 2 billion individuals globally born between 1980 and 2000 is something altogether different. Many are no longer “kids.” The oldest members turn 37 years old this year. They’re raising families, buying homes and they are an economic force.
Our latest Global Survey of Individual Investors finds that they are developing a unique outlook on the markets and investing. The financial industry needs to recognize who they are and how they’re different from other investors.
Culling insights from the 2,434 Millennials included in our global survey population of 8,300 individuals, we find distinct patterns of beliefs and behaviors that could possibly make or break their financial and investment success.
