What keeps pension experts awake at night? As William Sharpe eloquently explains, it’s the ‘nastiest, hardest problem in finance’ and that is: How to spend pension savings once we’ve stopped working. But that is only one part of the equation.

As individuals and societies age, our physical and mental health comes into focus. What can we do as individuals to allow us to have a longer, healthier life? How does loneliness at older age impact physical health? What should we do to change our healthcare system so that people can live healthier for longer?

The effects of an ageing population are linked with healthcare costs. Dr. Samir Sinha takes us through these effects and discusses innovative models of geriatric care.
