Redefining old age

25 July 2019
Author: Sangeeth SewnathDeputy Managing Director

At our GlobalSelect Investment Conference, Professor Sarah Harper (Professor of Gerontology, University of Oxford) discussed the impact of living longer on the world of work and retirement.

The combination of people remaining mentally and physically healthier for longer, combined with the job skills required for the knowledge economy, will profoundly influence future retirement strategies.

Advisors must prepare their clients for a new retirement mindset and address critical decisions as they transition out of the workforce.

Watch above as Sangeeth Sewnath and Professor Harper discuss managing living past your sell-by date.
