Asia: Getting ready for retirement
Source: Asia Insurance Review | Aug 2016
Modern, developed countries globally face a common challenge in a shrinking and rapidly ageing population that is set to put a strain on economies and potentially give rise to a myriad of societal issues. As medical technologies are further enhanced through the years, people will find themselves living longer but they might not enjoy the same quality of life as they had before.
Hence, industry leaders including the insurance industry and governments have much of their work cut out for them in terms of coming out with initiatives and policies to account for longer lifespans and ensure that the old gets the care they need.
Make your nest egg grow legs
To find out what more can the insurance industry do to help with this social phenomenon, Asia Insurance Review’s Asia Conference on Pensions & Retirement Planning, now in its 12th year, will assemble experts from the governments, regulators, insurance industry, pension providers and leaders to discuss the theme “Planning for A Smart Retirement in A Disruptive Era”.
Expect to hear about the latest buzz on pension reforms and schemes both around the world and the region, discuss and expound on regulatory issues, look into potential longevity risks, and partake in panels that speak on innovative solutions for pensions, wealth management, new technology, and the opportunities and strategies for smart retirement.
The two-day conference on 14-15 September in Singapore will give insurers a clearer picture on how to be a part of the solution in tackling one of the most pertinent challenges facing governments and regulators today.
