EP292 Navigating Financial Firsts and Spending Shifts with Interac

Will Keliehor, Chief Commercial Officer at Interac, joins the show to discuss the findings of a recent survey that examines how Generation Z approaches their finances and navigates financial firsts amidst current economic conditions. Gen Z is more likely to feel stressed, anxious, and overwhelmed compared to other generations, with 52% believing they will have to work harder for money. However, the survey also reveals that nearly seven in ten Gen Z individuals want to improve their relationship with money. In this episode, Will shares insights on how Interac and Conscious Economics are addressing the emotional barriers faced by Gen Z through financial therapy education, emphasizing the importance of both financial and emotional support. 

Listen in as we discuss practical advice, such as tracking spending, setting priorities, and utilizing available tools, to help Gen Z feel more in control of their finances and create a supportive community. By providing a clear focus on Gen Z’s financial challenges, emotions, and aspirations, this episode offers valuable insights for both Gen Z individuals and those seeking to understand and support this generation’s unique financial journey.

“Use debit. Track your spending. Set your financial priorities. Set your budget and take money out for your savings to fund whatever you’re trying to fund in the future.” – Will Keliehor
