Death rates of octogenarians, nonagenarians and even centenarians have fallen substantially in recent decades. Future improvements might be slower--or faster--than these past improvements. The balance of the available evidence suggests that improvements will continue such that life expectancy in the countries doing best will continue to increase about 2.5 years per decade. If so, a majority of children born over the past decade in countries with high life expectancy, including the United States, will survive to celebrate their 100th birthdays.

The nature of the maturing population will alter the types of products and services consumers will desire and need and that make sense from a business strategy point of view. The session will present some business opportunities created by population aging, and possibly identify some approaches that business might take to create or enhance opportunities to meet the needs of the increasing number, character and condition of older individuals. Business solutions discussed in this session will include: An employment services company for those past 50; financial services solutions for addressing longevity risk; and new types of housing arrangements for the growing number of retirees.
