HEALTH AND WEALTH LEADERSHIP FORUM: INVESTING FOR LONGEVITY

 

THURSDAY, MAY 3, 2018 | SHERATON BOSTON | 1:00pm – 8:30pm

InvestmentNews is excited to join us in hosting the event, with Publisher/VP and industry leader Suzanne Siracuse, moderating the panel discussions. Four panels will be presented, comprising of: senior leadership at broker dealers, senior leadership at asset management firms, industry leading financial advisors and innovative financial product representatives. This year’s theme, Investing for Longevity, is an enormously vital topic with far reaching consequences. By 2030 estimates are 1 in 5 Americans will be over the age of 65, and by 2050 the number of Americans 65+ will approximately double from today’s level to roughly 90 million. Whether you are running a company, managing personal wealth or building government policy, the aging population creates enormous challenges.
