The New Old: Getting To Grips With Longevity

Across our already troubled world, there are big population changes afoot, with dramatically falling birth rates in some countries and rising in others, but all with increasing lifespans – virus and obesity notwithstanding – meaning changes in “old-age dependency ratio,” and a radical new world order in 80 years’ time. This brings challenges for all nations, and for the financial sector, with the potential for fiscal strains, labour shortages, economic stagnation, and the certainty of increased spending on healthcare and pensions.

Simon Culhane invites us to think of the challenges, and opportunities in the UK for wealth management, financial planning and capital markets.

For three years prior to this, Simon was Deputy Director, Prime Minister’s Efficiency Unit, Cabinet Office where he was responsible for the Unit’s work in a number of major Government Departments.
