Investing in the Age of Longevity

Hosted by Master Investor, American Federation of Aging Research (AFAR) & Longevity Biotech Association (LBA)
Virtual: 09:30 - 17:30 We are on the verge of a lifespan revolution. In the next 30 years, life expectancy is going to rise to between 110 and 120. The nascent but rapidly growing longevity industry has the capacity to change forever how we live, and how (and when) we die. Crucially, it will also influence how we successfully invest for the future. How can we as investors and advisors prosper in this new era of longevity? Our one-day masterclass, Investing in the age of longevity, offers you the rare chance to be involved (and invested) in the birth of a new industry – arguably the greatest investment opportunity of all time.

How Employers Can Harness Diversity to Improve Employee Financial Wellbeing

Hosted by LSX
POSTPONED
During this session we are hosting a panel discussion to hear directly from employers on their experience and how both employers and providers can support members at and through retirement. The research looked to cover a broadly representative sample of UK adults aged 18 to 80+ covering a range by income, savings, region, gender, ethnicity and other key attributes. The study sought to understand attitudes and what influences people’s ability to save for their future, how they feel about the decisions they need to take now to plan for their financial futures and, for those that have already retired, to understand their experience since doing so.
