Distant Future and Longevity Risk

The WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM has long invited us to consider LONGEVITY RISK, mainly due to the lengthening of life, as the financial equivalent of CLIMATE CHANGE.

Governments have no means to deal with it and people are generally unaware that they have an individual longevity risk (= not having enough money to last until the end of life = prospect of a nightmare period of life).

It invites individuals to inform themselves and then defend themselves.

It takes new revenue to set aside and know-how to do so. Two aspects that are not easy also because it is a less media topic than Climate Change.

The World Economic Forum is an independent international organization committed to improving the state of the world.

Below are some publications available on the WEF website.
