Inflation and Investing Strategies for Financial Planning

Learn how to build a diversified portfolio that is better equipped for higher inflation.

Inflation comes and goes. It has been very low for a number of years until 2021. Now, the specter of inflation is clear. Some asset classes thrive during inflationary periods. This course reviews U.S. inflation over the past 96 years and identifies diversified investment portfolios that have provided better 'real' performance during periods of higher inflation compared to simple stock and bond portfolios. This material will also provide detailed guidance on how to build a modern 12-asset class portfolio that has components that perform better during periods of higher inflation.
