Email of the day on longevity

I hope you may comment and add the longevity ETF to the chart library 

Eoin Treacy's view

Thank you for bringing this instrument to my attention. The narrative around longevity and quality of life is being transformed as society ages. Everyone wants to live a long life and the medical profession has become highly successful at keeping us alive. However, with the rising prevalence of Alzheimer’s, chronic pain and the associated loss of quality of life, the narrative is changing to support a more vital and active life rather than simply length of years.

The Salk Institute is one of the primary research institutes focusing on aging and regenerative medicine. Elsewhere, just today, there were news items about a protein being investigated for helping us to live longer healthier lives and apparently naked mole rats don’t age at all. This article about stem cell related longevity treatments may also be of interest.

The wealth of interest in this sector is perhaps not so surprising which is of course why there is now an ETF to afford investors the opportunity to invest in it. It is currently somewhat overextended relative to the trend mean so is susceptible to consolidation.
