Transcript of Millennials
...a group of individuals who are about the same age, and have experienced specific historic events, such as:
an economic crisis,
an economic boom,
a war, or
significant political changes
What were they saying?
They're the most self centered, self seeking, self interested, self absorbed, self indulgent, self aggrandizing generation [in American history]
What were they saying?
[Gen X] has seen more medical and technological advances than any prior generation.
Gen X has shortened the learning curve, as their fast-paced attention span generates a continual desire for new ideas and, yes, even more technology.
What are they saying?
Stephen Colbert at University of Virginia:
You Owe the Previous Generation Nothing
For Millennials, the relationship with an expert consists of people coming together, sharing ideas, and drawing conclusions, based on input from all parties...they expect to be heard, and play a meaningful role in decision making.
Make investing approachable
Millennials have endured serious economic downturns during crucial times in their lives.
Although the economy has worked against this generation at many critical moments, they still have a hunger for risk.
Find ways to capitalize on that risk-taking spirit in order to bring some fun to investing.
Millennials are not motivated by stretch goals or ideal outcomes. They are paralyzed. The only way to gain their trust and capitalize on their risk-taking ability, is to be realistic.
Do not paint an ideal picture of the reward that can come from investing. Simply paint the picture of the less-glamorous risk-versus-rewards scenario. Remember, this information-obsessed generation will find out anything you aren't telling them.
Be as transparent and realistic as you can be, and you will truly be a trusted advisor.
