What is Financial Gerontology?

Financial Gerontology was established as a discipline in 1988.

Since that time, Financial Gerontologists have worked to identify those gerontological concepts, issues, data and research findings most relevant to financial services and to communicate them to a broad range of professionals through teaching and applied research.

Financial Gerontology is multidisciplinary, building on relevant teachings from biology, psychology, sociology and demography to understand the lifelong wealth span issues and aspirations of aging individuals and their families.
