Navigating Inflation, Interest Rates, and a Tumultuous Market
In the wake of the recent Fed rate hike, inflation shows no signs of abating soon. The impact of inflation has been felt by your friends, family members, employees, and clients. How will inflation impact your budgets? How do you address the inflationary concerns of your clients? What will be the longer-term impact of the current geopolitical strife on inflationary pressures? Recent events have elevated prices, asset class valuations are elevated, credit spreads are tight, and yields remain low. From explicit inflation protection to real asset investments, there’s ample opportunity to deliver value to investors even during tumultuous times.
