What is the Silver Tsunami?

We all know a record number of Baby Boomers are retiring in the next 10 years.

The current age of the Baby Boomer generation is 59-74 years old.

And the ABS estimates that around 800 Baby Boomers are retiring every day.

I want to buy a business so why do all these statistics about Baby Boomers matter??

This generation own 40% of all the small businesses in Australia.

That is around 420,000 small businesses that need to change hands in the next decade.

A whole generation of business owners is about to retire.

This ‘Silver Tsunami’ will be one of the largest wealth transfers from one generation to the next.

From your local mechanic to the smash repair centre, to the tyre wholesaler.

Whole industries are going to have opportunities for buyers to take over these enduringly profitable businesses.
