How Young Australians Can Retire Early in an Uncertain Future

About

Our biggest fear is that today's young people will have to work until they die.

Compare the average hard-working Boomer with the average hard-working Gen-Z / Millennial. We simply aren’t going to be able to turn up to work for 40 years, do a good job, pay off a house, and end up wealthy on a global scale like our parents’ generation did.

Young people are realising this - and we’re looking for different routes to financial independence. That’s why we’re changing how we work, save, and invest. In the context of mega trends, financial independence will be a defining enabler of climate action, gender equality, and racial equality. It has the potential to end underemployment and predatory credit culture, while delivering a happier society overall.

This panel will explore how young Australians can work towards financial independence. It will combine two of Australia’s most popular personal finance content creators, along with representatives of the nation’s leading long term investing platform. The purpose of this panel isn’t to provide financial advice; rather, its aim is to normalise conversations about money.

By the end of the panel, guests will have a clear set of guidelines to help them work towards a work-optional future.

WE CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU IN 2024
