Productive ageing in Hong Kong is a report from The Economist Intelligence Unit, sponsored by HSBC Life. The report is based on a consumer survey conducted in June 2021 of more than 600 Hong Kong residents aged 30-70 on their preparedness and perception towards post-retirement. The report was written by Siddharth Poddar and Shivaji Bagchi, and edited by Naka Kondo. Findings from the survey were supplemented with wide-ranging research and in-depth interviews with experts in the field.
