Inflation is back, what can you do about it?

05/26/22

Presented by Jimmy Becker, KGA partner

In this one-hour webinar, we'll discuss inflation as we develop tools and understanding that may aid in easing the burden on your cost of living.

Instead of discussing the obvious changes to shop more carefully, turn down the heat, and keep the car well-tuned, we'll focus on questions you may have about mitigating the short- and longer-term effects of inflation. These topics include:
  • Tools to track your monthly spending 
  • Understand if a fixed or variable rate mortgage is a better choice
  • Learn how housing prices may be affected by higher inflation
  • Recognize why short-term savings rates (eg, savings accounts and CDs) are lower than inflation
  • How the stock market may be affected by higher inflation
  • Difference between US Treasury inflation vs other long-term bonds that are riskier during higher inflation
  • Understand why income will likely not rise as fast as prices
