Things have changed since our parents were navigating the financial decisions that would help shape their adult lives.
Millennials and zillenials are navigating a laundry list of challenges that are impacting their lives in ways their parents never had to:
- Increased student debt and longer repayment periods after graduating from post-secondary education
- Skyrocketing housing prices that make it difficult, and sometimes impossible, for many to enter the housing market and become homeowners
- The ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, including economic challenges such as rising inflation and cost of living
These examples illustrate just a few of the factors that shape the financial decision-making process for the next generation of adults. Unlike previous generations, they face these challenges at a later stage in life and at a higher cost.
For many of us, this means our parents were able to think about and plan for their long-term futures sooner and with greater returns on their investments.
