About This Episode

Principal Financial Group® recently released the results of an extensive survey it conducted asking advisors and employers their expectations for the future of retirement. Among the key trends it identified were an aging workforce with evolving financial planning needs. At the other extreme, Gen Z workers are beginning their careers with investment and planning preferences that differ markedly from older generations. Other findings included the anticipated need for personalization, financial wellness monitoring and counseling, and better services for retirement planning.
