As we move towards the next generation of investors, many companies are actively adjusting and reworking their strategies to better align with the values and beliefs of Millennials and Gen X. This is in response to the prediction that over $68 trillion will be transferred from baby boomers to those within these generations over the course of the next three decades. Companies are now focusing on their communication, operations, and overall core beliefs to ensure they are connecting with customers who possess a youthful outlook and advanced technology capabilities. The changes companies make today open promising possibilities for how businesses will operate in the future, allowing them to keep up with shifting customer needs and generational trends.
