  • US forecast 8.5% inflation this year, highest since 1981. Over the last 10 years, the cost of living has increased by 31.85%.


How does that affect you?


This means that your money will lose value equal to inflation. For example, if you are in the UK, you are losing 10% on all your investments, savings and salary automatically. You will not see the 10% loss on your bank account but that's what inflation does. It decreases the value of your 1 EUR/GBP/USD. Therefore, your savings must earn more than inflation rate to maintain the value of your money.

Inflation hits your savings invisibly because it increases the cost of living by 10%. For example, if bread costs 1 EUR/GBP/USD it will now cost 1.1 EUR/GBP/USD and will not go down in price the next year, but will only increase from hereon.

1970: £1 = 10 loaves of bread

1980: £1 = 3 loaves of bread

1990: £1 = 2 loaves of bread

2020: £1 = 1 loaf of bread


How to protect your financial situation


Although inflation increases prices and cost of living, unfortunately, salaries and investments do not follow the same pace.


For starters, you'll need to make sure that a portion of your savings and investments are placed in fixed income products that earn a fixed return. This can be fixed income products, bonds or other loan and hybrid type funds.

This will provide protection from inflation and market swings that we are currently seeing and are expected in the near future.


Take control of your financial future by protecting your savings and retirement funds.
