Marsh & McLennan Companies, which specializes in human resources consulting, will contribute $1.5 million through 2013 to support the Stanford Center on Longevity’s studies and activities related to financial security.
According to a release, the two organizations recently collaborated on a conference where contributors from business, academia and government addressed retirement planning in the age of longevity. This fall, the Center’s Financial Security Division will expand its web resources on that issue.
Michele Burns, former chairman and CEO of Mercer, a Marsh & McLennan company, will serve as Center Fellow and Strategic Advisor to the Stanford Center on Longevity and to its director, Laura Carstensen, PhD, and deputy director, Thomas Rando, MD, PhD.
“The goal is to help drive the dialogue forward in order to facilitate a healthier state of long-term financial security—both for the individual and society,” Burns said in a release.
