Winning the loyalty of millennials continues to be a key area of opportunity for financial institutions. The term millennials has been synonymous with “youth,” but they currently range in age from 18 to 34, meaning a significant number are entering their peak earning years and need long-term banking services to support them through their lives.
Developing relationships with millennials won’t happen with tried-and-true efforts from a decade ago. Financial institutions need to keep up with this modern demographic by focusing on these key areas:
- Maintain a long-term vision
- Keep up with technological expectations
- Market with authenticity
- Provide education for financial literacy
- Connect to something bigger
With the right strategies and investment, financial institutions can become trusted partners to millennials and open the door to profitable, rewarding relationships.
