Study: More than half Gen Z and Millennials relying on inheritance
A study by Edward Jones Canada on wealth transfer trends since the start of the pandemic says more than half of Gen Z and Millennials (54 per cent) need a financial inheritance or windfall to reach their financial goals, which is 13 per cent more than the national average.
According to the study, age remained a key differentiator in terms of what has prompted wealth transfers since the start of the pandemic. For those aged 35-54 and 55+, wealth transfers were prompted by the death of a family member or friend (51 per cent and 63 per cent, respectively). This was much less of a factor for Gen Z and Millennials (28 per cent), who gave and/or received a wealth transfer to address more immediate needs or life events.
Those include personal financial factors like job loss or unforeseen home and health expenses, factors related to the economy, like inflation and interest rates. It’s also includes major purchases like a home, home renovations or a car, and significant life events like a birthday, or having a child.
