KPMG Senior Partner speaks to Economists

It has been a busy couple of weeks for Sixth Formers, who have had a series of insightful lectures, starting with a talk from David Fairs a Senior Partner at KPMG, a market leader in providing professional services. This was an immensely scholarly talk about the power that the city possesses on determining pensions and the retirement age. In addition to this he gave a wider view of living a flourishing life in the city, before answering questions about the ‘demographic time bomb’, and the current labour participation ratios contributing towards the pensions schemes.
