The risks of population aging are great; but what about the upside? What are the possibilities for innovation and economic growth? How will GenXers, Millennials and coming generations shape the future of aging and the investment landscape?
Population aging has profound implications for businesses, governments and individuals across the globe. With a doubling of the number of individuals aged 60 and over by 2050, aging will present increasing health, financial and social challenges.
But a new understanding of the opportunities presented by people living longer is powerfully emerging. A longevity economy is developing as global markets recognize the demand for products and services for this growing consumer demographic. Investors and entrepreneurs are recognizing the potential for return. Older adults are increasingly understood as an abundant human capital resource, building businesses and contributing to workplaces through experience, wisdom and inter-generational mentorship.
Please join DLA Piper and Paul H. Irving of the Milken Institute, who will lead an informal roundtable discussion on the challenges of population aging and the opportunities of the growing longevity economy. The discussion will be followed by a cocktail and appetizer reception, where you will be able to meet other key executives, professionals and opinion leaders who are interested in this topic.
Paul's work to improve aging lives is regularly featured in such outlets as PBS, Forbes, CBS, NBC, Reuters, CNN, Yahoo, The Los Angeles Times, USA Today and The Wall Street Journal.
