One of the fastest growing demographic populations?  Centenarians,  currently numbering over a half-million worldwide. And thanks to changes in healthcare and lifestyle in about 30 years, the number of people 100 and older will be eight times as high as it is now. What does it mean for retirement, savings, life insurance, beneficiary management, and even the workplace? In this webinar, Forrester and LIMRA examine:

  • The factors driving growth in centenarians and supercentenarians
  • The venture investments—including by life insurers—that will shape the longevity economy
  • The implications for life, health, annuities, and benefits insurers
