Help Millennials achieve financial confidence

Many Millennials are overwhelmed by debt and don’t feel in control of their lives. While technology is important in reaching this audience, a great opportunity exists to help them with personal guidance.

What keeps Millennials up at night?

Millennials’ top concern is student loan debt, and 70% of this generation who are paying off student loans say they aren’t managing the process very well.1 That isn’t their only financial challenge. Only 33% have a retirement account, and 74% say immediate payments make it hard to save for retirement. They also feel less in control of their lives right now than any other generation.
