Financial planner Sean Caldwell and his son Jacob Caldwell emphasized the importance of saving early in life on a recent episode of „The Big Money Show.“ While Gen Z is known for its tech-savvy mindset when it comes to making money, the road to achieving their retirement goals by the age of 61 is filled with uncertainties. The evolving investment landscape has made it difficult for young people to take risks with limited financial resources.
According to The Heritage Foundation Tech Policy Center director Kara Frederick, the game has changed significantly, and while there may not be a lot to lose, there is still a chance of losing it all. Trusting solely in artificial intelligence (AI) or digital solutions without fully understanding their purpose may lead to misguided decisions, warns Charles Schwab Communication Consulting and Participant Education director Marci Stewart. It’s important to identify the challenges faced and then determine the appropriate tools to address them.
A study conducted by Charles Schwab revealed that 75% of Gen Z respondents are comfortable seeking help from AI tools for financial planning. However, both financial and tech experts urge caution in relying entirely on digital tools to make investment decisions. The Heritage Foundation’s Kara Frederick states that while AI can be effective in analyzing data and identifying patterns, the algorithm should not be trusted blindly, as it may overlook certain aspects that a human would consider.
When it comes to market and economic decisions, Frederick emphasizes that AI bots are still prone to making mistakes. Tailoring specific advice to individual needs and providing bespoke answers in the financial field is an area where AI has a long way to go. In the survey conducted by Charles Schwab, regardless of age, respondents expressed a greater preference for human advice over computer-generated advice. Money decisions are personal and emotional, and people require human support alongside technological solutions.
Gen Z’s aspiration to retire by the age of 61, as revealed in the study, surprised even millennials like Kara Frederick. Considering the challenges they face, such as increasing levels of student debt and the difficulty of homeownership, it seems more likely that Gen Z will have to work longer rather than retire earlier. However, Charles Schwab’s study also highlights the importance of financial advice to Gen Z and their engagement in managing their finances. By focusing on finances early on and developing good financial habits, Gen Z can work towards achieving their retirement goals.
