Unpacking the triumph of ageing

For much of the past 200 years, improved life expectancies were the result of reductions in death rates of those in early and middle age. But, in recent decades, there  has been a shift to improving and lengthening the lives of those who are older, which implies that ageing is a more malleable process than previously thought. In this video,  Dani Saurymper, portfolio manager and research lead for Longevity at AXA IM Framlington Equities and Emeritus Professor Thomas Kirkwood Associate Dean for Ageing at the University of Newcastle discuss the triumph of ageing, the science behind it and the impacts it is having on society at large.
