Innovative investment solutions to offset the dangers of long-term inflation
Preservation of spending power is a key concern across the pensions spectrum.
Even very low levels of inflation can have a damaging effect on pension pots over the long term, greatly reducing the lifestyle that beneficiaries can enjoy. While everyone experiences the effect of inflation differently, those on lower incomes feel it most acutely. We believe that protecting against inflation is critically important to ensuring preservation of spending power and a happy retirement for pension beneficiaries.
