As fresh as Motif Investing’s product appears, it’s not totally groundbreaking. Folio Investing got there first and now offers more than 100 ready-to-go customizable portfolios ranging from traditional allocation themes to tactical strategies such as analyst upgrades; military procurement; and wine, beer and spirits. The unlimited plan is $29 a month or $290 annually, while the basic plan is pay-as-you-go at a $4 commission per security transaction. Folio portfolios can hold as many as 100 securities.

“Motif is disruptive, but it fits into the broader trend of downward pressure on commission costs,” says Grant Easterbrook, an analyst at Corporate Insight, a New York City-based financial services research company.

And down the road, Easterbrook posits that online discount brokers such as E*Trade, Scottrade and TD Ameritrade that don’t have their own fund families (unlike rivals Fidelity and Charles Schwab) could someday become competitors to Motif and Folio. “It’s possible to imagine them rolling out a similar service of customizable funds,” he says.

Getting good investment advice doesn't require millions in the bank anymore. These days, an army of online advisers will offer low-cost solutions to the age-old question: How do I invest my money? Many will even do the trade for you, rebalance your portfolio periodically and suggest ways to minimize your taxes, too.

Online and mobile tools can help plan sponsors better fulfill their fiduciary duty and motivate participants to be more active with their investment options, a new study from Corporate Insight has found.

The report, Engaging Participants: Best Practices for Plan Sponsors, suggested participant engagement can be vastly improved if key data points are clearly presented.

“Embedding such critical information for participants is very important,” Drew Maresca, senior analyst at Corporate Insight, told MMI. “Current contributions and retirement income projections should be right there, at the top in the homepage.”

As the recent report by the Corporate Insight financial services consulting firm — The Millennial Shift: Financial Services and the Digital Generation— put it: “With a high debt burden and low income stream, Millennials need help balancing their budgets, managing their credit card and education debt, and planning for retirement and other goals.”
I can relate. My two sons in their 20s are trying their best to make it on their own, and it hasn’t been easy for them. My wife and I are no longer covering their rent or their daily living expenses, with one exception: their cell phone bills. (As a friend of mine who also has two twenty-something sons just told me, somewhat hyperbolically: "Everyone pays their kids’ cell phone bills.")

How to Succeed with Millennial Clients PDF Print E-mail

Generation Y (also known as Millennials) are struggling to reach financial security, but that doesn’t mean financial services firms can afford to overlook them.

In a new white paper, "The Millennial Shift: Financial Services and the Digital Generation," financial research and business intelligence firm Corporate Insight argues the 80 million members of the Millennial generation must be considered in short- and long-term business planning by financial advisers and others in the money management business. It's a pressing matter, the firm says, considering more than half of the average adviser's clients are from older generations, between the ages of 50 and 70, suggesting advisers will need to find new clients to prevent shrinkage in assets under management (see "Advisers Struggle to Gain Young Clients").
“Generation Y will be a difficult market for the financial services industry to crack,” explains James McGovern, vice president of consulting services at Corporate Insight. “This is a diverse generation that’s struggling with serious financial problems like college debt and underemployment."

Financial firms must prioritize mobile innovation to secure and hold Millennials’ business, according to a new study.
The past 20 years have marked a shift away from financial transactions being conducted in offices and over landline phones and toward a Web-based model. Millennials are now more interested in using mobile devices, the Corporate Insight study says.
Currently, 18% of 18- to 34-year-olds consume digital media strictly through mobile devices compared to 5% of 35- to 54-year-olds and 3% of those 54 and older.
