Living longer. Investing smarter.
CI deepens partnership with MIT's Joseph Coughlin

Introducing the CI Global Longevity Economy Fund

Over the past two decades, Joseph F. Coughlin has been busting myths about aging with groundbreaking research into what older people actually want - not what conventional wisdom suggests they need. And since there will be more than 1 billion individuals 65+ by 2030 (and 1.6 billion by 2050)1, his research has become more important than ever.

CI Global Longevity Economy Fund will incorporate insights from Dr. Coughlin's book, "The Longevity Economy" to help identify the companies with the potential to serve the new and changing needs of this growing group of wealthy consumers.

The Fund will:

  • be managed by Jeff Elliott, Ph.D.
  • seek to identify the companies with the potential to serve the new and changing needs of this growing group of wealthy consumers
  • focus on 40-60 reasonably valued firms with the potential to outperform the market over the next 5-10 years
