Episode 37: Balancing the Risks of Both Inflation and Market Volatility

Mar 17, 2023

In this episode, Eric and Katie examine the dangers of exposing your savings to greater market risk in order to combat inflation.

Here are just a handful of the things that we'll discuss:

  • The risk of inflation is a particular problem for retirees who struggle with the challenge of finding ways to periodically increase income throughout retirement
  • When the earnings and growth in investment portfolios don’t keep pace with a rising cost of living, the chances of outliving savings increases
  • If inflation stayed at a constant rate of 8%, it would only take about ten years for money to lose half its value
