RBC Wealth Management surveyed 1,000 high-earning and high-net-worth millennials to understand their needs, wants, pain points and preferences when it comes to money management. Here’s what we found:
Eighty-four percent of millennials agree they spend a lot of time thinking about their financial security, but many are unsure of what they need to do to attain it.
Eighty-four percent of millennials say it’s important to consider environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and that ESG investments are an integral part of their investment strategy.
Fifty percent of millennials plan to retire before age 65–but they don’t want their parents’ retirement. Many seek to establish passive sources of income—or
side hustles in the gig economy—and reinvent themselves in retirement.
When you define your financial goals, it’s easier to plan for, act on and achieve them. In the RBC Wealth Management survey, we identified three common goals millennials have. Do they align with yours?
