SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND
There was a wake-up call for millennial investors this week with the publication of the latest BlackRock Investor Pulse Survey.
Apparently, on average, those aged between 25 and 34 predict they will only live to see their 79th birthday. In fact the average 30-year-old can expect to reach 90 and one in five millennials will live to be 100.
Increased longevity and the challenge it poses for governments and for individual investors is the subject of my latest blog post:
