But there is one super old industry that’s seeing a big bounce from the millennial generation. in, fact, it’s so old that it goes back to ancient egypt.


Millennials actually hold the largest allocation to gold in their portfolios when compared to other generations.

Investors in that demographic hold an average of 17 percent of their portfolios in gold, compared to about 10 percent for baby boomers, according to state street data from 2023.
