Brigitte Miksa is head of International Pensions at Allianz Asset Management.
The ageing of our societies is one of the greatest success stories of the twentieth century. More than three decades have been added to the lives of hundreds of millions of people over the past hundred years. This is an accomplishment well worth celebrating; but we must also bear in mind that with increased longevity comes significant long-term economic consequences -- and that many societies are ageing at a record speed.
