I read a short article earlier today that discussed whether or not people who've gone through two recessions in their lifetime will continue to trust their company's ability to prepare them for retirement. It got me thinking about how much more agency people of the working class will take in managing their own retirement and how much alternative investment opportunities will arise in the future of our new normal. How do you think this changes for businesses and what does this mean for financial institutions?

Budgeting, Feedback, Finance Do you mean working class as the class below middle class (roughly), or do you mean anyone who works for a wage?

After living most of my life in Mexico, which we had more than 2 recessions. I could tell you, that you can’t rely on your company’s ability to rely on your retirement. I do it for myself as well as many people does it. Companies here easy come, easy go.
