Well. It would be nice if you can outperform inflation by that margin. For now, I am not worrying about inflation, and rather focused on return from the portfolio. Also, the inflation is somewhat irrelevant because your needs change as you age, so inflation on medical services impact more than inflation on beer or grocery items. So without getting too detailed, I am looking something like settle for 6% to 7% return and then decide on investments that can provide that kind of returns with acceptable risk and volatility for me.
