The next wave of wealth
Reach younger investors: Generation Now Study for RIAs
Your most important clients may be younger than you think. See highlights of Schwab's Generation Now Study for RIAs to take a closer look at high-net-worth investors between the ages of 30 and 45. We call this group "Generation Now" because of the significant growth opportunity they represent for Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs).
Generation Now: Who they are and what they want
Your firm's future may hinge on your approach to the Generation Now opportunity. As existing clients age (60% of RIA clients are 56 or older1), building connections with the next generation of investors is essential. Our research shows that Generation Now investors already control nearly $3.5 trillion—and they're ideally suited to working with RIAs.
