FinCap Friday: Gen Z Credit Frenzy

Gen Z has gotten a reputation for being "the ones who are credit/debt averse." But, data from VantageScore during summer 2022 showed that this might not be entirely true! Gen Z credit card usage is actually pretty high and the rate at which their credit card balances have increased is almost three times as high as all other generations! Find out why in this week's episode of FinCap Friday...

If you're short on time for this activity, try our simplified No Tech version containing embedded questions right in the slide deck!

Check out all our FinCap Friday episodes here. They're not date-dependent so many of the 170+ in our catalog dating back to August 2018 may work throughout the coming year!
