Apex Fintech Solutions Data Shows Gen Z's Growing Support for the Metaverse and Climate Forward Initiatives in Fourth Quarter 2021
Apex Fintech Solutions ("Apex"), the "fintech for fintechs" powering innovation and the future of digital wealth management, today released its Q4 2021 Apex Next Investor Outlook. Based on proprietary data from customer accounts held by Apex Clearing, this report highlights the top stocks and other noteworthy holdings within the rising class of Gen Z investors. The report also examines which stocks fell in the rankings alongside behavior parallels and comparisons to older generations.
Apex's Q4 2021 Investor Outlook data demonstrates a decreasing interest from young investors in meme stocks, particularly AMC, while reinforcing investment in the payments sector, including companies such as Paypal and Block. Consistent with the third quarter 2021, the stocks held within the Gen Z top 10 included Tesla, Apple, Amazon and Microsoft.
Looking ahead, Apex's data revealed young investors are intrigued by the metaverse and its ability to transcend the worlds of social networking, culture, gaming and all things digital. Moreover, an exciting year-end development emerged when electric vehicle startup Rivian significantly climbed the rankings, suggesting Gen Z's increasing propensity towards supporting environmentally conscious and climate forward initiatives.
"We have only begun to scratch the surface when it comes to the digital and technological evolution of our world - and Gen Z investors are at the forefront of this change," said Bill Capuzzi, Chief Executive Officer of Apex. "In a rising rate environment, we anticipate investors spanning Gen Z to the baby boomers will be active equity market participants. As we head into 2022, we are proud to support their ability to invest across leading digital wealth management platforms who count on our technology to access the financial markets."
The Apex Next Investor Outlook includes an analysis of the top 100 stocks owned by millions of investors on the Apex platform. The Q4 2021 report is based on more than 1 million Gen Z accounts, in addition to more than 5 million accounts held by Millennials, Gen X and Baby Bomers.
