They’re tech natives. They’re constantly connected. They value diversity and social justice. And they can’t balance a checkbook. So, how can financial brands turn Gen We’s weakness into a win-win? And (of course) Millennials, too. Well, these people care less about YOLO, more about adulting. They like reading Money Diaries, a blog about women working small budgets in big cities—because after all, girls just want to have fun with finance. Still, they’re reluctant to stray outside of conservative investments, and the reason may surprise you. Additionally, some estimates suggest the opportunity presented by female investors is at $5.4 trillion. Now we have your attention…

How banks and credit unions can connect with Gen We. A recent report by the Organisation (“s” intended) for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) suggests that many teens aren’t financially literate. The findings, released in May 2017, are from an international student assessment, which tested 15-year-olds in several countries.

How to market to young Millennials. We’ve heard the stereotypes of young Millennials. But is there any truth to them? This generation isn’t all YOLO, all the time. They’re not frivolous or irresponsible in their attempt to live for the moment. And when it comes to adulthood, they’re definitely not delayed.

Money Diaries is the Millennial woman’s Bridget Jones. I wonder what’s in her wallet? That’s the gist of “Money Diaries” at Refinery29, a New York-based website that publishes the daily personal financial decisions of Millennial women.

Women have money to invest. So, what’s stopping them? When it comes to banking, women are just as likely as men to have the basics—checking, savings, mortgage, retirement plans. But when it comes to stocks, mutual funds and life insurance, women are far less likely than men to invest.
