Fintech for Aging and Longevity Course
The ONLY course today that bridges Fintech and the trends of aging and longevity
Join our next cohort on March 21st !
DESCRIPTION OF THE COURSE
The aging process is more dynamic than ever, with extended disability-free stages including opportunities in the labor market. This demographic creates new opportunities for every generation. The aging process is also associated with financial risks such as extended periods of chronic conditions and long-term care and a higher economic burden on individuals and their families. These factors are creating a need for financial technologies (Fintech) to play a central role by offering innovative solutions to plan, monitor, and finance a longer life while protecting and supporting aging adults and their family caregivers.
In light of these changes, we have developed a unique course to help corporate professionals recognize the value of Fintech solutions as a driver of sustainable engagement with aging customers, thus improving financial inclusion and financial wellness for people as they age.
