Headlines you need to know this week   —   January 18, 2022

Many workers seeking financial advice
In a recent survey of more than 5,700 adults, respondents cited the top five financial areas where there was an unmet need for advice – an advice gap. The topics included handling market volatility, choosing investments, estimating required minimum distributions (RMDs), making buy/sell decisions on investments, and estate planning. Calculating RMDs was among the top five concerns across all age groups. Estate planning advice was an unmet need across all income levels. More households sought help for multiple financial tasks in 2021, with growth driven by households with $100,000 to $500,000 in assets.
Investors less bullish on stock market, survey
Investor sentiment grew more bearish in the AAII Investor Sentiment Survey for the week ended January 12, 2022. The percentage of those citing a bearish sentiment – the belief that stock prices will decline in the next six months – increased to 38.3% from 33.3% in the previous week. A bullish sentiment — the belief that stock prices will rise — dropped to 24.9% from 32.8% in the prior survey. The number of people citing a neutral view increased by 2.9 percentage points.
Student debt is obstacle for Millennials
Student debt has impacted Millennials more than any other generation according to a new study. Many Millennials feel financially stalled by rising college costs and the ongoing economic recovery. The research looked at the impact of student and medical debt keeping many Millennials from saving and building credit to buy a home. Among respondents, 40% said student debt has had a “moderate” to “very strong" negative impact on their plans to purchase a home.
