With rising rents and student loan debt through the roof, saving money can be challenging for many Americans. However, a new survey from CK client, TD Bank found that nearly half of Americans described themselves as “good savers” and many are feeling confident in their ability to save for the future.

Want to know which generation feels the most confident when it comes to savings? That’s right, Gen Y!

In the spirit of celebrating Financial Literacy Month at CooperKatz (#CKFinLit), I began reflecting on the financial advice that’s made a difference in my life.

Thought Bubble is a space for members of the CooperKatz team to share whatever comes to mind - from news about our company and clients, to insights on the constant evolution of the marketing communications landscape.
