Social Mega-Trends Shaping Personal Finance

Part of preparing for retirement is understanding what the future of finance may look like. Dani Fava, futurist, and Head of Strategic Development for Envestnet, believes our interaction with our finances is profoundly impacted by societal behaviors. In this session, she’ll discuss four social mega-trends that take place in our everyday lives. These trends could potentially alter the personal finance landscape by changing how FinTech firms operate, impacting how companies perform, and affecting the way we interact with our money.

Trends vs. Reality in Investing

Markets kept everyone on their toes in 2020. Investing trends shifted just as quickly as investor emotions. Investopedia (one of the most popular online encyclopedias for investing) saw that shift first-hand in search data. In this panel, Jonathan Roberts and Alexandra Kerr of Investopedia will join Lule Demmissie, president of Ally Invest, to identify if consumers really put their money where their search is, by breaking down the most popular questions from 2020 and what they could mean for investing and retirement.
