 Have you ever wondered where millennials go for financial advice? Do they really think social issues are more important than money? There is a rhythm to how people run their financial lives, but there are also generational differences. Generational trends are shaping the future of banks. Compared to baby boomers or Gen X-ers, when it comes to a career in banking, millennials are more concerned about uninteresting work than low pay. A new research project aims to uncover the hidden generational trends in financial habits and banking relationships, and explores the relationship between millennials and banks.
