NSE RH Patil Memorial Lecture 2018: Robert Merton

NSE organised RH Patil Memorial lecture yesterday and the video of the lecture is here.

Prof Merton has been talking about the need to design a bond for retirement needs which is becoming a huge issue for advanced countries today and for developing world later. He calls these bonds as Selfies: Standard of-Living Indexed, Forward-starting, Income-only Securities. These bonds will only give you payment on your retirement year like the pensions. This will help those who are not covered under pension markets.

Slides of earlier lecture on the same topic are here.

The lecture is followed by a firechat with Prof Jayant Varma of IIMA which is equally interesting.
