Keeping Up With Rising Prices

For most investors, the ability to "print money" would be good thing. In the hands of central banks, however, it’s a much riskier proposition. In recent years, the US Federal Reserve, Bank of Japan and other central banks around the world have more than doubled the global money supply in an effort to support global economies.[2] An increased amount of money heightens the risk that purchasing power could eventually start to erode. One favored fixed-income strategy to counter less purchasing power has been to buy inflation-indexed bonds, which seek to preserve principal and adjust interest-rate payments to the rate of inflation. This motif provides exposure to bond ETFs that hold US Treasury Inflation Protected Securities (TIPS), as well as government-issued inflation-indexed bonds of foreign countries. See more
