A new generation of traders: The new ‘values’ of young financiers

A new generation of traders has arrived in 2020 during the successive lockdowns. Although it does not change the rules of the game in the financial markets, it reveals a perception of the economy (macro and micro) that is very different from those of its elders. Thanks to the disintermediation of information and access to financial markets, these young adults are investing in new values to gain independence, or even total emancipation, from the labour market. Whilst this new concept of economic stability and personal enrichment has its share of risks and abuses, it carries along many levers of influence that will shape the future of finance and economy.
