New Developments in Retirement Risk Management
September 28 — 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Olivia S. Mitchell of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School will present a free public lecture at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery.
As the world confronts unprecedented global aging, academics and policymakers are growing increasingly aware of the need for better risk management tools to manage the demographic transition. It is critical to identify innovative insurance and financial market products that can enrich the range of options for households, employers, and governments facing the challenges of an aging population. After outlining thoughts on how rising longevity is shaping financial markets, we discuss opportunities for better responses that can enhance efforts to better manage retirement risk.
