This story will give you 5 ways to stop inflation eating into your wealth and household income. This list is an taken from an article on my site with15 inflation busting tools you can use. Enjoy!


Gold and Other Tangible Assets

One of the most popular inflation-proof asset classes to invest is intangible assets like gold and silver. These metals cannot be printed by a government and they retain their value more easily than other investments.



Another inflation hedge investment as inflation rises is in commodities. Commodities are essentially raw materials that have future value, so they will often rise when inflation occurs because the cost of production increases while simultaneously decreasing their supply.


60/40 Stock/Bond Portfolio

60/40 is a well-known investment mix that includes 60% stocks and 40% bonds. It reduces risk by including both inflation hedging assets like metals, commodities, etc. as well as treasury bonds which are often inflation-protected themselves


Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs)

Real Estate Investment Trusts are a type of security that holds investments in real estate property. They can be publicly traded on stock exchanges and will often pay dividends as well as offer inflation-protected rental income from tenants who have to continue paying rent even if inflation occurs.


S&P 500 ETF

An inflation-proof way to invest in stocks is through an S&P 500 ETF. The S&P 500 index consists of the biggest, most liquid companies on the American stock exchange and this type of fund will track their performance so you can expect inflation protection as long as they exist.
