Bloomberg Announces New Dialogue Series with Disruptive Pioneers in Government, Business, and Finance

Bloomberg is proud to present RADAR – Tracking Tomorrow a new annual dialogue series that will bring together disruptive pioneers in government, business and finance to advance progressive ideas, innovative policies and world-changing philanthropies that are shaping our future. At the virtual event on December 1-2, 2020, Bloomberg will also launch its ‘Data for Good’ initiative in Asia, with philanthropy partner Dasra in India. Speakers at the event will include some of the most influential business leaders and policy makers from across the region. RADAR is by-invitation only and will be streamed live to a select audience of CEOs and policy makers from across Asia-Pacific.

“We are pleased to launch RADAR as our new dialogue series in Asia. It is our constant endeavor to bring together the best minds in business, government and the social sector to identify and discuss the most pertinent opportunities and challenges facing the world. As rising Millennial and Seventh Continent wealth trigger world-altering changes, governments must enact policies that recognize the potential of these changes to both advance and disrupt our societies. The most successful policy-makers will be those who are data-driven and who build strong consultative relationships with the increasingly tech-infused private sector” 

Peter Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg

This year’s inaugural RADAR event will present new perspectives on the opportunity-rich demographic segment of people aged over 60 – and how they are impacting business models, growth rates and policy making. Global experts, ranging from policy-makers to entrepreneurs will explore how rising life expectancies of this group are helping to create an opportunity-rich geography of new financial possibilities, more inclusive business models, and smarter, data-driven philanthropic endeavors with the power to revolutionize our societies.

“Healthy Longevity will reshape the global financial system and disrupt the business models of pension funds, insurance companies, banks, investment firms, and entire national economies. The Longevity industry will dwarf all other industries in both size and market capitalization. At the same time, it will require unprecedented sophistication in its approach for assessment and forecasting from the beginning to neutralize challenges and reveal opportunities.”
