The Future, and Our Place in It

What’s ahead for humanity, for society, for pensions, and for actuaries? That’s what Richard Worzel, C.F.A. and today’s leading futurist, will address. Among the topics he’ll touch on will be:

• Technology, and where it’s leading us;

• Climate change, and what it will do to us;

• Demographics and longevity, and the surprises ahead of us; and

• Anxiety, how we feel about the future, and what we are doing about it.

‘We’re in for a wild, but fascinating, ride,’ says Richard, ‘and those who will benefit are those who are prepared.’

Get Ready! What’s Coming to the DC Pension Industry

The next decade will be pivotal for all pension managers and plan sponsors. It will be a tumultuous time, with aging boomers starting to cash in for their retirements, governments coming under pressure by those who are not adequately prepared, and major seismic shifts in the global economy and domestic workplace. Richard Worzel is a strategic planner, Chartered Financial Analyst, and one of today's leading futurists. In this presentation he surveys the landscape of the future, including:

• The continued expansion of life expectancy and the coming rush in new medical miracles;

• The pressures that will shape the debate in governmental pension reform;

• What the shifting of economic power to developing countries means for our economy and plan sponsors; and

• How technology is going to radically reshape the workplace, both in the way business is done, and who is hired.

Challenges and Opportunities in Our Aging Society

It's not your imagination that the pace of change is accelerating; not only is it accelerating, but the rate of acceleration is rising. Changes are heading towards the pension and benefit industry from demographic shifts, including immigration and emigration; globalization opportunities and challenges; technologies that appear at ever-faster rates, and change the rules of business; governments that are trapped by their lack of forward planning, and behave irrationally; and more. These are some of the key challenges facing any competitive organization today in the pension and benefit industry, and those who wish to remain competitive and prosperous need to anticipate the changes ahead as well as respond constructively to the surprises that are certainly in store. Futurist and strategic planner Richard Worzel maps out both the landscape ahead, and the strategies you will need to adopt to stay ahead of the crest of change.
