Are You Ready for Your Clients to Live to 100?
February 4, 2020 by Jane Wollman Rusoff
The gee-whiz factor may have dimmed with respect to digital voice assistants, drones and even, among the jaded, flying cars. But in the next decade, stunning high-tech developments will revolutionize every major industry on the planet. So says futurist Peter Diamandis, founder of more than 20 leading-edge tech companies, in an interview with ThinkAdvisor.
Prominent among rapidly accelerating converging technologies are those that will extend the human life span, not merely by years but by quality years.
Indeed, to help people plan financially for feeling as vital at 100 years old as they did at 50 or 60, the advisory industry will require a transformation, argues Diamandis, who forecasts the longevity revolution to create a multitrillion-dollar marketplace.
Named by Fortune one of The World’s 50 Greatest Leaders, the bestselling author of “Abundance” and “BOLD” has just released a new book, “The Future is Faster Than You Think: How Converging Technologies Are Transforming Business, Industries and Our Lives,” written with Steven Kotler (Simon & Schuster-Jan. 28).
