Should I be concerned about inflation when investing for retirement?

Investing and Inflation

Many people are concerned about the effect that inflation will have upon their retirement portfolios. This is very important for those who live on a pension or personal savings and don't have “new money” coming in. It is an important area to consider, especially if you are investing your money in an area that will yield a fixed return. However, if you diversify your retirement portfolio, you can rest assured that you will be adequately covered during high inflation years. If you are interested in purchasing assets that rise and accommodate for inflation, then you may want to consult with your Investment Advisor about Treasury Inflated Protection Securities (or TIPS). These treasury notes will accommodate for inflation.
