DALLAS, July 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Apex Clearing, the custody and clearing engine powering the future of wealth management, has released its Q2 2020 Apex Millennial 100 report, an analysis of the top 100 stocks owned by millennial investors using Apex partner applications as of June 30, 2020. The report analyzed more than 1.3 million investment accounts owned by US-based investors with an average age of 31 years and seven months.
Amid persistent uncertainty and volatile markets during the second quarter, millennial investors remained uber bullish, opening accounts and trading shares at increasing rates. The Q2 Apex Next Investor Outlook [https://go.apexclearing.com/apex-next-investor-outlook-q22020-infographic] identifies notable patterns and provides insights into how this group of more than one million millennial investors reacted, with a special focus on how millennials are investing during times of crisis and volatility in comparison to other generations.
"In Q2, trading volumes across our partner platforms increased nearly 30% compared to the heavily volatile Q1, and it was another record-setting quarter for account openings," said Bill Capuzzi, CEO of Apex Clearing. "It's difficult to pinpoint the reason why—maybe it's an effort to implement new financial habits during pandemic lockdowns or a way to pass vast amounts of time spent at home—but the numbers don't lie: millennial investors have become more active in recent months."
