Combined with the current global financial crisis affecting all investors, retiree’s may be forced to liquidate much of their remaining capital while alive and in doing so, super wealthy families, sovereign funds and developing countries in the East will buy up a larger portion of the retiree’s assets resulting in a massive transfer of capital ownership to the developing world.
