In this episode of Pioneering Pensions, we’ll be speaking with Amlan Roy on one of the most important, yet often overlooked, factors that affect us all – demographics. We’ll discuss the impact of demographic trends on social security, economic growth and asset prices. In other words, we’ll explore how demographics will shape our future. As always, things are not as simple and straight forward as they seem to be.  

In the second part of the conversation, we’ll turn it over to the audience to ask Amlan questions.
