The Future of Retirement: New Timing, New Purpose, New Funding and New Planning Help Needed

With the convergence of rising longevity, the aging of the massive Boomer generation, and widespread financial insecurity stemming from the COVID pandemic, there is a greater need than ever for trusted, holistic financial guidance.

The Rise of History’s Biggest Untapped Market – It’s Hiding in Plain Sight!

Men and women over 50 now make up 33% of the total U.S. population and 44% of the adult population but control more than 70% of total wealth. Due to the combination of rising longevity, declining fertility, and the aging of the Baby Boom generation, this group is now bigger than the entire market of most countries. As active and curious consumers, they are responsible for 53% of all food and grocery purchasing; 55% of all travel and leisure consumption; 56% of new car and truck purchasing; 68% of OTC drugs and 77% of all Rx drug consumption; and 78% of all retirement accounts. However, people 50+ only appear in 15% of advertisements and are disproportionately portrayed as old, sick, and homogenous.

Ageless Aging: The Art and Science of Living Longer, Better

The quest for long life has fascinated humans since the beginning of time. In the 21st century, it has become both a pressing social issue and big business. Over the last 100 years, life expectancy has skyrocketed from age 47 to nearly 77. While this 30-year “longevity bonus” offers many wonderful opportunities, it also creates an enormous challenge: how do we increase our healthspans to better match our longer lifespans so we can enjoy the many upsides of long life?

The Longevity Revolution: Triumph or Tragedy?

History’s greatest accomplishment—increasing longevity—could ironically become civilization’s greatest crisis. Left “uncorrected,” it could cause an economic misalignment of every aspect of society from pensions to playgrounds; global pandemics of degenerative diseases, including a billion humans with dementia; and a gerontocracy that could spark political age wars.
