FPA Share the Dream 2018 Research Report

This year’s Financial Planning Week, run by the Financial Planning Association of Australia, is focused on the next wave of ‘dreamers’, sharing money wisdom and practical tips with the people raising the next generation, so they can pass on the financial habits and skills that children will need later on in life.

The research includes the views of over 1,000 parents of Gen Z and Gen Alpha (aged 4 to 18 years) on raising the Invisible-Money Generation, uncovering gaps in money knowledge and expectations between generations. Did you know that 66% of parents believe digital money is making hard for children to grasp the value of money? Or that 62% of parents believe their children’s generation will be financially worse off than their own.

Interestingly, those who have sought the advice of a financial planner are the most likely to believe their kids are equip to transact in today’s digital money world.

These are just some of the insights revealed in the report.

The Financial Planning Association of Australia is celebrating Financial Planning Week from 20th – 24th August 2018. For more information visit their website here.
