Kane Tanaka is a Japanese supercentenarian . She was born on 2 January 1903 and at 116 years, is the world's oldest verified living person. She has lived through the two World Wars and a host of other tragic and happy events.


What if like Kane Tanaka you are blessed with the gift of longevity and live to say 100 or even beyond 116 years, in what state would your finances be?

Today, we all seem to underestimate how long we are likely to live in spite of the breakthroughs in medical science that suggest otherwise. For instance, according to www.worldlifeexpectancy.com Nigeria's life expectancy rate has grown from 38.7 in 1960 to 55.2 in 2016 corroborating the fact that we are indeed living longer than we used to.
