Financial Wellness Amidst Inflation
By Chuin Ting Weber, CFP, CFA, CAIA, CEO & Chief Investment Officer, MoneyOwl
Inflation, recession and stagflation are scenarios that strike fear in all of us. We wonder if we will have enough for everyday expenses both near term and, for those of us who are not yet retired, if we can still live comfortably in our golden years. There is a lot of focus on changing how we invest and picking out the right companies in which to invest as a way to beat inflation, but this often falls short of its goal and can even be counterproductive, not to mention stressful! On one hand, navigating through market cycles can be simpler than that. At the same time, managing money well amidst inflation requires a more comprehensive, flexible and well-thought-through approach. Chuin Ting’s sharing has been found by many to be both insightful and practical in navigating the volatile environment. Join us as she shares how to preserve and grow your money without anxiety, come what may, in the macro environment.
