Gen Z may have taken some of the limelight as the newest generation coming into adulthood.
But millennials may have another reason to get attention — the Great Wealth Transfer is less than a decade away.
By 2030, it’s predicted that millennials will inherit over $68 trillion from Baby Boomer relatives.
