Overview

Are you financially and emotionally prepared for the possibility that you could live to the age of 100? In the face of increased longevity, the traditional concept of retirement is becoming outdated.

Instead of planning how to slow down, many of us are contemplating the prospect of working for longer, changing careers and even going back to university. Yet for those making this transition, there are also financial challenges to overcome as the pensions landscape changes.

Full Overview

To be chaired by Claer Barrett, FT Money editor, the latest in our series of FT Money Investment Forums will discuss:

  • Are your finances on track to fund your future lifestyle?
  • How should we factor increasing longevity into our investment plans?
  • How can families “future proof” their financial planning when it comes to inheritance?
  • How will the workplace of the future change – and can you reinvent yourself?
  • Are you investing enough time learning new skills to equip you for a career change in later life?

Our star-studded panel features London Business School professors Lynda Gratton and Andrew Scott, authors of the award-winning business book The 100 Year Life: Living and working in an age of longevity.

They will be joined by Lindsay Cook, the FT’s Money Mentor columnist, and Michael Martin, financial planner and relationship manager at Seven Investment Management.

You will have the opportunity to put your questions to the panel at the event.

In association with (1)

We are 7IM, a straightforward investment management business that aims for more stability and predictability over the long term, so the amount you need has a better chance of being there when you need it.

We set up the business in 2002 because we couldn’t find an investment management service we’d be happy to use ourselves. So we invest alongside you too and we now have £12bn under management.

And we’re careful on cost and big on service; it’s a common sense approach that’s surprisingly hard to find.
