      DescriptionThe new scheme framework, according to Huang, would split members into separate 'generational' funds based on their age and give them the ability to invest under specific lifecycle or target date strategies. The scheme's design would then encourage risk-sharing among the age groups either by allowing groups to buy and sell either the surplus assets once all members die or buy and sell some of the benefits that members may own.
