Gen Z x Finance Infographic Asia

63% of Gen Z in Asia state their interest in financial planning and/or investing has increased in the last 2 years. Rather than following expensive business courses, they self-educate online. 50% of Gen Z does this by following influencers on social media, aka ‘fin-fluencers’. Next to saving (74%), Gen Z is eager to invest (74%), with stocks (29%), education funds (18%), mutual funds (18%) and health plans (17%) taking up a large share in their investment portfolio. Yet this generation goes beyond traditional investment products and sees a lot of potential in cryptocurrencies (20%) and Fintech solutions. 66% even hope Fintech can provide their generation with ways to gain wealth.

So, what does this mean for brands? Gen Z expects accessible and actionable financial advice, supporting them with building financial resilience.
