Can you protect your wealth from inflation?

Take 90 seconds to find out how inflation is eroding the real value of cash savings - and what you can-do about it.

It may be time to invest your cash…with care

With UK inflation (as measured by the consumer price index) currently at 3.2% and the Bank of England base rate at 0.1%, the real value of cash savings is being eroded by 3.1% a year (as at 20 September 2021).

And with The Bank of England expecting inflation to reach close to 4% by the end of 2021, the situation looks set to worsen for savers.

So, if you have excess cash in the bank, it may be time to consider investing some of it to protect your wealth from inflation.

However, investing comes with risk and must be approached with care. That’s why it makes sense to speak to an investment management expert. They will establish the level of risk you’re comfortable with and identify the most appropriate strategy to meet your individual needs.

Investment involves risk. The value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount originally invested.
