Inflation and Income: How to Protect Your Purchasing Power
Investors relying on steady returns from fixed income investments may find that their real yields are threatened in inflationary environments. Nevertheless, there are strategies to help limit the negative effects of inflation while simultaneously pursuing upside. In this upcoming webinar, Nationwide and ETF Trends will outline a unique strategy that seeks to generate income, protect purchasing power, and provide a measure of downside protection.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Shares of any ETF are bought and sold at market price (not NAV), may trade at a discount or premium to NAV and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. The Fund’s return may not match or achieve a high degree of correlation with the return of the underlying index.
Smart Beta: Rules-based strategies that seek to capture risk premia, sources of return that represent identifiable, replicable, and exploitable compensation for taking investment risk, from one or more asset classes in a systematic and transparent fashion. Strategic beta escapes the traditional constraints of capitalization-weighting in portfolio construction, by reconfiguring the complexion of an index-like portfolio. May serve as a potential source of incremental returns or a way to potentially manage risk like traditional active funds; may further aid in potentially achieving a desired outcome, such as dampening the impact of market volatility or pursuing higher income.
