Ten Finance Creators to Watch on Instagram:
People aren’t turning to traditional institutions for financial advice; financial influencers (finfluencers) are creating the content these hard to reach audiences are looking for.
According to a recent report, 76% of Gen Z Americans are picking up financial advice from social media. 10% of that demographic are turning to finance-savvy influencers on Instagram for budgeting, debt management, and investing guidance. While those under 27 primarily use social media, 57% of the US population looked to a range of sources for their financial advice in 2023. For the year ahead, a rocky economy coupled with a contentious election race is likely to drive more of us to seek actionable solutions to our financial goals or concerns.
This presents an incredible opportunity for brands to partner with financial content creators; financial influencers who offer the advice and insights these audiences are looking for. These “finfluencers” are carving out their niche with highly engaged target audiences that brands can tap into for their products and services.
We take a look at some of the most brand-friendly financial influencers on Instagram right now and some of the companies they are already working with.
