MoneyLion's Personal Financial Wellness Survey Reveals Younger Generations are Turning to Social Media and Financial Influencers for Financial Advice
MoneyLion Inc. ("MoneyLion") (NYSE: ML), the go-to destination for personalized financial content, products and advice, today shared findings from a recent MoneyLion Personal Financial Wellness Study1 conducted through Morning Consult. The survey, and subsequent results, are especially timely as January is considered Financial Wellness month and will bring closer attention to improving financial wellbeing, which is key to MoneyLion's mission. The survey was broken down into several sections on personal financial wellness and found that while many Americans - especially younger generations - are largely unfamiliar with different financial products and terms, apps like MoneyLion are well-positioned to shorten the distance from education to action.
Importantly, the survey provides evidence how consumer habits, with respect to the consumption of financial content as well as product usage, are changing in the United States. MoneyLion's unparalleled approach to financial content delivery, and access to a complete offering of financial products, is well positioned to meet these new consumer trends.
The results highlight that while roughly a quarter of Americans currently use digital/online-only banks, usage is significantly higher among younger generations. The same trend holds true for sources of financial information as younger Americans are much more likely than older Americans to go online for financial information with 3-in-4 Gen Zers and Millennials citing a digital source (such as apps or social media) as most important for receiving financial information.
In addition to Gen Z and Millennials being more comfortable with digital banks and consuming financial education and content via apps, social media and influencers, the findings show that respondents had high levels of comfort taking action based on financial information received via digital sources. Specifically, while only a quarter of Americans surveyed indicated they have received new information about managing their finances recently, more than two-thirds of those that have received such information also indicated they've taken action based on that information. This showcases that MoneyLion, with its extensive financial education initiatives and digitally-available product offerings, is well positioned to help educate consumers and allow them to then take action.
