Events Details (Code: 210122N1-CDX)

Finance/Investment is about inter-temporal allocations of resources. One of the major trends the world has to adapt to is an ageing society. However it isn’t just that there are more old people. Life expectancy is increasing so that regardless of your age you can expect more time ahead of you than past generations. This increase in life expectancy requires constructing a new life course – changing what we do and when we do it and fundamentally altering our careers and life path. These changes have major implications for us as individuals, for companies, the educational sector as well as government.

 
In this talk and conversation, Professor Andrew J. Scott will draw on his recent research and his published best sellers “The 100 Year Life” and “The New Long Life” to
 
-          Explain historical trends and what we are likely to see going forward
-          Outline what this means for the needs of individuals over the life cycle
-          Discuss new products and major concerns that will emerge
-          Highlight the sectors most likely to benefit from this longevity trends
-          Consider the implications for the financial sector
