Marching to a Million

The Millennial Journey to Retirement


The Future is Closer Than You Think

What’s the first thing that pops into your head when you hear the word “retirement”? If you’re like most millennials, it’s probably a vague image of some far-off future state you can barely imagine, much less be concerned about.

If retirement feels irrelevant, it’s not surprising. You’re just beginning your adult life, gaining independence, maybe starting a career. Your focus is on the here and now. You may also have obstacles standing in your way such as student loan debt. But it’s never too early to start thinking about the future.

Millennials are projected to represent roughly one-third of assets managed and clients served for most advisor practices within five years – a 50% increase over current levels.
