MIT AgeLab Research
For more than a decade, we’ve partnered with the MIT AgeLab to uncover what investors are thinking about lifestyle trends, who they trust, and the future of retirement—all of which influence their decision-making process. Our advisor consultants can provide coaching to help you deepen relationships with clients by applying AgeLab research and tools to your practice.
Clients have been told a certain story of what aging should look like. And for a long time, they’ve bought into an “old age” story filled with leisure and relaxation. But what if clients’ thoughts about aging changed. What if one day, they woke up and realized things could change if they wanted them to? They didn’t have to live a vision of old age that was created years ago. Their later years could actually be anything that they want.
Longevity, demographic changes, and technological innovation are revolutionizing the workplace. These changes create a number of challenges for plan sponsors but, more importantly, some exciting opportunities.
A new array of devices and services is transforming retirement, making it easier for aging clients to work, stay healthy, live at home and remain connected to friends and family.
