Affluent Gen X'ers and Millennials are looking for financial advice, and to prepare for the significant generational wealth transfer from the Baby Boomers in the coming years, we have explored how to better serve the members of these younger generations.
How do we define affluent Gen X'ers & Millennials?
Yes, Gen X'ers and Millennials are different than Baby Boomers, but the affluent members of the younger generations will go through most of the same life stages their parents did.
