What you’ll hear in this episode:

In early 2021, a worldwide increase in inflation began to occur.

It has been attributed to various causes, including pandemic-related fiscal and monetary stimulus, supply shortages, and as of 2022, the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

While it’s important to manage our budget and control our spending during these times, it’s also good to still invest whenever we can.

In this episode, I shared five investments that you can consider during this period of high inflation.

Namely, they are:

  • An investment in knowledge
  • Investing in a side hustle
  • Putting cash in a high-yield savings account
  • Investing in a money market fund
  • Buying companies that profit with inflation

Excerpts and Highlights:

Take stock of your free time, your skills, your network, and available resources. These four factors will point you to the best side hustle you can do to earn extra money.

If you have cash that you’re not planning to use for the next 12 months, then the time deposit is a good option. Then as much as half of your emergency fund can be parked in the digital bank high-interest savings account.

For your short-term and medium-term goals, or for money that you’re planning to use within the next 5 years, a tactical investing strategy right now is to put them in a money market fund.

You can continue with your long-term investing strategy as is, but if you want to be a little tactical, you can buy shares of companies that belong to profitable sectors during high inflation.
