Hedging a Portfolio Against Inflation: What Do I Use?

Graham Day
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.

  • Retiring in a Low-Return Environment Recorded: Feb 24 2015 62 mins
    Presenters: Wade Pfau, David Blanchett, Michael Finke
    Most research on optimal retirement income strategies is based on long-term historical averages. Retirement experts David Blanchett, Michael Finke and Wade Pfau will show how using returns better calibrated to current financial asset values (rather than historical averages) leads to a much more conservative estimate of safe-withdrawal rates for retirees. They’ll also discuss how to use different return scenario perspectives to improve the quality of investment advice and recommendations for your clients.

  • Two Schools of Thought on Retirement Income Recorded: Dec 17 2014 62 mins
    Presenter: Wade Pfau Moderator: Robert Huebscher
    There are two fundamental schools of thought concerning the planning and implementation of retiree income withdrawal strategies:

    · The probability-based school of thought argues that systematic withdrawals from a diversified portfolio, when based on a withdrawal rate that would have worked historically, will be fundamentally sustainable over a client’s lifetime.

    · In the safety-first approach, also called lifestyle finance, spending goals are segmented between essential and discretionary needs, and clients use different investing strategies for each type of goal. This webinar will provide a detailed analysis of both schools of thought and how they can be applied to a financial planning practice.

    This session will provide a detailed analysis of the similarities and differences between these schools of thought and how they can be applied in a financial planning practice.

    Wade Pfau is a professor of retirement income in the new Ph.D. program for financial and retirement planning at The American College in Bryn Mawr, PA, and is the chief financial planning scientist for inStream Solutions. He is a frequent author on topics related to financial planning and writes a monthly article for Advisor Perspectives.
