Financial planners know the importance of staying up to date on the changing trends in the industry. However, did you know that 56 percent of financial planners in the industry are age 50 or older?
Do you know how many are under the age of 30? Five percent, according to these statistics from Earnst and Young.
There is a huge need for educated financial planners right now. According to an article by Brandon Gaille, generations X and Y are expected to generate $46 trillion in assets by the end of 2020. Out of that $46 trillion, $18 trillion is expected to come from inheritances from their baby boomer parents.
Educated financial planners are necessary to help educate and guide generations X and Y with good financial choices.
