Advisors are Pursuing Younger Clients
The industry has been talking about it for years, but now it appears to be happening in earnest-advisors are finally targeting younger clients in force. While Baby Boomers dominate the industry's AUM right now, 42% of firms say they are actively changing their marketing and networking to attract Gen Xers and Millennials. TD Ameritrade comments that "In just five years, RIAs expect 41% of their clients to be Gen Xers or millennials. This should be a wake up call to those who think that Next Gen wealth is literally still a generation away".
FINSUM : The tide is really starting to shift and it is going to happen faster and faster over the next few years as Baby Boomers age and the wealth of the young grows.
