In the past, life was divided into study-work-retirement. The average person would work for 40-odd years, and then retire, usually with a defined benefit pension, and enjoy their retirement. But the decimation of defined benefits, the rising focus of the gig economy, and the increase of average expectancy means this is no longer the reality for many workers.

It's a topic Morningstar Investment Management’s head of retirement research, David Blanchett and retirement author Don Ezra have been discussing for some time.
