Steez Podcast #1: What financial services has learned so far trying to capture, delight, and retain the hearts and minds of today’s youth
- Understanding what makes Gen Z tick is imperative for financial services firms in positioning themselves for future success.
- With a series of 3 interviews, Tearsheet's Steez Podcast explores how this generation is already impacting banking, investing, and payments.
As consumers, Gen Zers are proving themselves to be quite different from previous generations – and that doesn’t just have to do with being digital-first.
Short for 'style and ease', Steez marks Tearsheet’s dive into understanding the unique financial demands and preferences of this emerging generation of adults, including in-depth research into consumer behavior and conversations with leading experts in the field.
The industry is light years behind conquering the Gen Z mindset. That’s why we’ve partnered with Publicis Sapient to create #STEEZ, a hub for finserv potentials to learn more about Gen Z and what it means to capture and delight them (download The STEEZ Guide to Gen Z readiness, here: https://steezlife.co/).
