Our mission is to transform the way we age, live, care and “retire”.

About PrimeLife Partners

We collaborate with a diverse range of partners, including corporates, NGOs, universities, and government seeking innovative solutions in addressing  the challenges and opportunities of living longer.

We work alongside policymakers to advocate for improved outcomes, both in Australia and internationally.

We are dedicated to supporting longevity economy entrepreneurs and startups, connecting them with a network of advisors, mentors, and investors.

 

Our Focus

PrimeLife Partners is dedicated to transforming how we age, live, care, and retire by building and advocating for a resilient longevity economy ecosystem in Australia. Our focus is on addressing the urgent challenges of living longer through four key pillars:

Financial Security

Promote the need for improved financial security in retirement.

Care

Highlight the care needs and gaps of our ageing population.

Housing

Recognise the urgent need for affordable housing solutions.

Consumer

Advocate for the evolving consumer market and longevity economy.

WHY NOW – The Opportunity

👉🏼 The Asia Pacific Silver Economy is predicted to hit US$4.56 trillion by 2025 (Ageing Asia)

👉🏼 Our Silver Economy market will grow from around $60bn in 2021-22 to more than $110bn by 2026-27 (PM&C 2023)

👉🏼 Australia’s intergenerational transfer of wealth will reach $3.5 trillion over the decade

According to the ABS, 2025-2030 are critical years where we will see:

👉🏼 The peak growth of over 65s and over 85s from 2026-2030

👉🏼 An exponential increase in the 85+ cohort between 2023 and 2031.

👉🏼 More people living alone which has triggered a growing loneliness epidemic.

Innovation Unleashed : Reimagining Longevity and Care

In November 2023, PrimeLife Partners held a half day combined keynote, panel and workshop session, led by Anne-Marie Elias and Abby Bloom (Primelife Partners) as part of Spark Festival.

● Outnumber under 18’s by 2030.

● 95+% plan to age in their own homes and

● by 2030 will be retiring and drawing down on their super, yet most lack financial advice needed to ensure the care and home they will need as lifespans approach 100.

● Australia has effectively run out of carers.

Innovation is urgently needed to address what is already recognised as a crisis. Australia lags peer nations who have a clearly defined longevity & care ecosystem, and the

● policies that encourage and support innovation,
● corporate-applied research pathways, and
● dedicated funds to grow technology solutions
