In this Ask The Hammer, Robert Powell, editor of Retirement Daily asks Jeffrey “The Buckinghammer” Levine of Buckingham Wealth Partners to answer concerns expressed by several Retirement Daily readers about today’s high inflation and interest rates.

Jeffrey and Bob talk about different approaches to investing in a high inflation environment.  Jeffrey explains that an investor’s approach to inflation should reflect the type of investor they are. He describes the two basic types of investors and how each might respond to inflation:

  1. Tactical investors believe they can make significant bets on future trends to take advantage and maximize their portfolio’s value. Tactical investors may focus more on buying assets that are rapidly appreciating and selling investments that have historically suffered in inflationary times.
  2. Strategic investors generally buy and hold diverse investments over a longer time. These investors may want to tweak their existing portfolio slightly, but won’t want to make big changes.

No matter what type of investor you are, Levine recommends having an “investment policy statement” to remove emotion from your investing. This is especially important in unusual times, like today with high inflation.
