The focus of Episode 67 is on Senior Citizens and eInclusion – a topic that is not only essential for every auditor as an aging individual but a super relevant conversation to caregivers and family members that want to support their senior network (such as family, friends and colleagues) to exponentially harnessing digital tools and capabilities for the current and future times. Are financial services products bias to this age stage? Or is aging just a new phenomenon for society overall? Longevity and digital inclusion are the mottoes for the episode, and Matthias Kröner is the moderator of the discussion with guests Dr.Ira Sobel (FinTech 4Longevity) and Sergey Balasanyan (Longevity Card / Deep Knowledge Group).
