Purpose-centered

HMW create services that allow those 50 and older to a live a life of purpose?

As we get older, the purposes and passions we choose to integrate into our lives evolve and shift with growing interests and priorities. The environment, education, philanthropy, public health, civic and community engagement, philanthropy, play a role in how we spend our time and money. Purpose is a recurring factor in what we choose to take on, and could drive the way we structure and design financial services going forward. How might we leverage our connection to purpose-driven actions to create innovative financial services and products for those 50 and older?
