Hedging a Portfolio Against Inflation: What Do I Use?

In light of years of monetary and fiscal stimuli, many believe the economy may be predisposed to inflationary pressures. In this webinar we will discuss how an allocation to commodities can hedge a portfolio from inflation as well as look at which asset classes have performed well in rising, falling and stable inflationary environments. We will also discuss why treasury-inflation protected securities (TIPS) may not be a suitable hedge against inflation.

    Is investment portfolio design becoming commoditized as countless articles, papers, and blogs say? If this process merely involves measuring risk tolerance and recommending a model portfolio the answer is “Yes.”

    •Provide a framework for a collaborative, educational design process that gives clients greater awareness of their own risk tolerance, a truly customized portfolio, and a higher level of confidence in their decisions;
