Industry Overview

Studies report the number of Americans over 80 will double in the next two decades. The effect that this phenomenon will have on everything from healthcare, to housing stock, to tax law cannot be overestimated. While the “Silver Tsunami” demographic varies greatly in terms of health, income, and lifestyle/housing preferences, some trends, in terms of longer lifespans, more active lifestyles and growing economic disparities can already be tracked. These will have far-reaching implications in areas from finance, construction, and real estate to government, employment, and healthcare.
