"The Financial World is having it's Tontine moment" - Prof. Moshe Milevsky

"The Financial World is having it's Tontine moment" - Prof. Moshe Milevsky

Prof. Moshe Milevsky, author of several seminal books & papers on tontines, was interviewed by David Emanual of D-Benefits Podcast.

It's a great listen with this great takeaway at the end:

Milevsky: Look, the world is having or the financial world is having its Tontine moment, if I can say it that way based on the interest in this topic so you know whether this will go anywhere will fade, I don't know it's tough to predict these things but it there's certainly a lot of interest in it people talking about it in a very established organizations, whether it's the World Bank or the OECD, talking about it you know there's something nice to see about it being that I was writing about this, you know 20 years ago and I've written 9 books.

I know that you sort of know that a topic is really taking off when & this was a while ago I was on a zoom call on some other thing and somebody asked me, Professor Have you heard of these things called tontines? I’m like, oh okay, so you know, it’s definitely going mainstream if they're asking me if I've heard of (David laughing in the background), if they had bothered searching looking googling others have I heard of tontines… Yeah vaguely vaguely.

Following hard on the heels of the OECD recommending that tontine pensions are made mandatory, OECD member Canada is reshaping its pension system.

Their planned new tontine pension does what it says on wa Variable payment life annuity, convill be called a Variable Payment Life Annuity, conveniently shortened to VPLA. The VPLA tontine will do exactly what it says on the tin and provide a payment stream that varies based on the performance of the underlying investments and the rate at which members pass away.
