Due to increasing longevity, declining fertility and the ageing of the massive Baby Boom generation, retirement is undergoing a monumental transformation. No longer a passive time to wind down, it is becoming a dynamic stage of life with new opportunities, fears, purpose, choices and funding challenges – that will alter nearly every aspect of the marketplace, the workplace and our personal lives.
We all know that tomorrow’s demographic challenges won’t be solved with yesterday’s game plan. In response, Age Wave and an experienced group of researchers, gerontologists, sociologists, economists and academics have just spent 70,000 hours investigating the huge range of new lifestyle, health, work, housing, giving, family, leisure and finance dynamics that this demographic transformation will activate. We reviewed thousands of papers, reports and datasets, conducted over 140 expert interviews and 43 focus groups, culminating in cutting-edge surveys of 50,000+ nationally representative respondents.
We have attached the nine study reports that Age Wave conducted in collaboration with Bank of America Merrill Lynch on “The Future of Retirement/Longevity/Aging” for your review.
