Millennials and their younger Gen-Z counterparts are an independent, entrepreneurial lot. Having seen what the Great Recession did to their parents’ nest eggs, distrust of financial services is high*, and as a result, confidence in the stock market as a viable retirement planning solution, or as the pathway for a successful career is low.
That’s why we are investing in programs to help provide real-time, hands-on education and financial support in college classrooms across the nation. Opportunities are abound for this generation, and we are committed to helping them pursue their goals.
With ever-tightening budgets, colleges and universities are looking for ways to provide students, who saw what the Great Recession did to their parents’ nest eggs, with hands-on financial education. Now in more than 250 schools, TD Ameritrade U gives instructors trading tools via our thinkorswim trading platform and real-time trading simulator, paperMoney®, to help tomorrow’s investors and traders build real-time knowledge and experience that they can confidently apply in living, breathing markets.
TD Ameritrade U won the award for "Special Achievement – Educational Initiative" for bringing trading to the classroom at the 2015 Benzinga Fintech Awards.
TD Ameritrade Institutional, eager to help the registered investment advisor industry remain vibrant for years to come, is encouraging more young people to pursue financial planning careers and helping more universities offer financial planning degrees, increasing the ranks of graduates prepared to join the industry.
Over ten years, TD Ameritrade will invest more than $2 million in scholarships, grants and other programs to raise awareness of the industry's need and the outstanding opportunities awaiting the next generation.
After all, U.S. News & World Report recently ranked "Financial Advisor" one of the Top 5 business jobs and the 25th best career overall, citing its solid job prospects and work-life balance.
