Goldman Sachs Says Millennials Are Old News

National Other

Millennials are so last least that's what analysts at Goldman Sachs say. Instead, market researchers should pay attention to Gen Z, the generation born after 1998.

Developers are spending record amounts to crack the Millennial code, particularly in the hospitality sector.

Gen Zs are expected to be more pragmatic, and be happier with rising "ethnic diversity in America than prior generations," the note says.

In addition, they'll be more financially conservative, and have new tastes, which could prove challenging for developers as they get ready to hit the housing market.
