Designed to connect and educate the next generation of investors.

As a cohort of over 12 million in the UK alone with a growing consumer influence and the likely beneficiaries of the greatest wealth transfer in history, Millennials and Gen Z are quite the force to be reckoned with.

Contrary to previous generations, Millennials and Gen Z thrive in the experience economy, actively pursue ventures of philanthropy and will undoubtedly carry more debt than any generation before them. So, it is only natural that their financial journey and investment decisions be somewhat different.

The Professionals Network is dedicated to making the world of investing accessible and giving you a greater understanding of your financial situation through education, open discussion and networking with like-minded peers. We seek to tackle relevant topics and issues around saving, planning and investing, specifically tailored to the interests and concerns of those in the early stages of their career.
