Speakers included:

As the world ages, older people are increasingly important consumers, workers, carers and volunteers.

But poor health is a barrier to maximising the longevity dividend.

ILC held the global launch of our flagship “Health equals wealth: Maximising the global longevity dividend” report alongside the G20 Finance Ministers’ and Central Bankers’ meeting, where we shared our new findings on:

  • The value of the longevity economy through spending, working, volunteering and caregiving across the G20;
  • The role of health in delivering a longevity dividend;
  • How global policymakers can unlock a longevity dividend, in the post-COVID recovery and beyond.
