Redesigning Retirement: A Conversation with Dr Anthony Asher

Anthony Asher Retirement Income Framework.

The Actuaries Institute recently published a paper authored by Dr Anthony Asher titled: Developing the Retirement Income Framework.

I sat down to talk to Associate Professor Anthony Asher about longevity risk, retirement income options and the trade-off between an income that lasts for life, access to cash and leaving a bequest.

“Having products that more efficiently manage longevity risk will result in higher standards of living in retirement and will better align the superannuation system with its objective.”

I hope you enjoy, and please let me know if you have any questions or comments.
