Shopping must-haves for Generations Y and Z are…

New attitudes, behaviors and shopping preferences among Generation Z and Millennials are keeping retailers on their toes. 
Emerging in-store technologies and positive social media feedback are top priorities among both Generation Z and Millennial consumers. This is according to retail advisory firm HRC Retail Advisory (HRC), which surveyed 1,350 participants in North America about their shopping experiences.
More than 90% of Generation Z said that a strong Wi-Fi signal is important to them and their overall shopping experience — a prerequisite to take advantage of emerging solutions, such as Magic Mirrors, when shopping. In fact, 66% of Millennials said they would be somewhat likely to use the technology.

I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture.  For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments.  Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients.  I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
