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.")

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.

Plan sponsors, it's time to step up your digital game.
 
Today, the New York-based consulting and research shop Corporate Insight released a new study, Engaging Participants: Best Practices for Plan Sponsors, to provide sponsors with different strategies for improving their plan participants online/mobile-friendly experience.
 
"We are definitely looking to get more active in the plan sponsor space," Drew Maresca, a senior analyst at Corporate Insight, tells 401kWire. Digital platforms well equip "plan sponsors with educational tools and devices to what participants should be looking for in a plan [on behalf of the participants]."

Still, young adults haven't escaped unscathed from the recession. They're less willing than their older counterparts to bear risk in financial investments since 2001, the paper found.

There's also a greater chance they carry student loan and housing debt, a sign that such borrowing may be substitutes for the credit card and auto debt that young adults from the generation prior were more likely to have, according to the paper.

Separately, a private financial-services industry study last week said millennials are "struggling with serious financial problems like college debt and underemployment."

The study, by Corporate Insight, said banks and other financial institutions have work cut out for them in doing business with millennials, who "have limited investable assets and low tolerance for market risk."
