A private investor for 20+ years, I manage private portfolios and write about investing. You can read my market musings on three different sites: 1) The Deipnosophist, dedicated to teaching the market's processes and mechanics; 2) Investment Poetry, a subscription site dedicated to real time investment recommendations; and 3) Seeking Alpha, a combination of the other two sites with a mix of reprints from this site and all-original content. See you here, there, or the other site!

The Longevity Game

Talking about insurance...

Well, okay, so we were not talking about insurance. But this 'game' comes courtesy of Northwestern Mutual, and provides a guess as to the number of years that remain in your life. Watch the age prediction change, as you answer the various questions.
(The algorithm bases its guess on your answers to a sequence of actuarial-type questions.)

Other calculators on the site include questionnaires to determine your risk tolerance, and other investor profiles.
