The World Economic Forum and Mercer invite you to a multi-stakeholder workshop that examines issues that are becoming increasingly important to future financial outcomes as people are working and living longer. 


Longevity economy

December 7, 2021


This meeting will focus on topics related to the Longevity Economy including how workers in the gig economy can achieve retirement equity, and how to provide financial solutions to a workforce that will have four generations of employees working side by side. 


Shaping the future of financial and monetary systems

The Redesigning Retirement project shapes new approaches to address today’s biggest retirement and longevity questions, and:

  • Examines issues that are becoming increasingly important to future financial outcomes
  • Focuses on the innovations that can help people become more financially resilient
  • Explores new issues such as how the gig economy will transform retirement policies and what the multi-stage life will mean for traditional savings plans

The ideas, solutions and strategies generated during these workshops will arm all key stakeholders – governments and policy makers, employers, financial and service providers, and individuals – with tangible ways to drive innovation and reimagine retirement.

Date and time:

December 7
UK time: 13.00-14.30
