Millennials are facing a once-in-a-generation economic crisis…again. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, experts had written off millennial wealth prospects as significantly bleaker than preceding generations due to high education and consumer debt, stagnant salary growth, and low rates of homeownership. The global pandemic’s jolt to the economy has prompted mass unemployment, a looming bear market, and potentially another global recession. As millennials have settled into remote work and negotiate social distancing, they now grapple with a future-shaping issue – their money. Members of the Council’s Young Professionals Network are invited to learn and discuss how the current economic landscape will impact their financial future with Michael Pezzuto of William Blair. Through an interactive virtual salon, Michael and YPs will examine the challenges and opportunities young professionals now face with their income, investments, and prospects for wealth growth and legacy.
