Adjust Your Allocations for the Impacts of Inflation
Inflation is persisting despite Fed intervention, creating the likely possibility of a hard landing. Portfolio allocations need to be adjusted to account for the disruptive impacts of high inflation, and real assets remain a compelling inflation hedge. Join VanEck and VettaFi for a May 4th webcast.
Topics covered will include:
- An overview of historical inflation regimes
- Why the Fed’s attempt to fight inflation could create a recession
- How real assets could protect your portfolio in the event of a hard landing
Accepted for one hour of CFP/IWI/The American College Board CE credit for live and on-demand attendees
