Join our next cohort starting on June 6, 2023 !
DESCRIPTION OF THE COURSE
The demographic trend of aging has a number of effects on pension and healthcare systems as well as financial markets. The sustainability of pension systems can be affected by a variety of factors, including the ratio of workers to retirees, the performance of investments, and changes in health and thus life expectancy. Moreover, aging affects healthcare systems by the need to serve the need for long-term care with more people suffering from chronic illness for long periods of time.
In addition to that, the demographic trend affects financial markets by changing the composition of the investor base and interest rates. As people age, they are often more likely to shift their investment portfolios from high-risk, high-reward investments to more conservative, lower-risk investments. This can lead to changes in the demand for different types of asset classes, which can, in turn, affect the performance of financial markets. These trends have important ramifications for governments, regulators, banks, insurance companies and other policymakers while planning for the future and building new strategies and business models.
AGING AND ITS EFFECT ON ECONOMIES AND FINANCIAL MARKETS Course combines insights from academic research, experience from observing policies and best practices as they are deployed around the world, along with societal changes that are expected to occur in the future.
