“Following the pandemic, an increase in retail trading has given rise to a new type of influencer, the ‘finfluencers,’ or financial influencers who use TikTok to share tips on how to make the best out of their money. While not financial professionals, these influencers use what they have learned to help guide others into short- and long-term success. Some of these trend setters are also Gen Z investors. … investing alone isn’t the only thing that makes zoomers stand out. They are also more likely to take the do-it-yourself approach to many of their needs, which helps them save more in the long run.” (07/13/21)
