Be proactive about inflation

Like sudden market drops and economic recessions, inflation is another risk that investors need to plan for. Creating an investment mix that considers your time horizon for investing, risk tolerance, and financial situation may help you weather the storms that may crop up along the way. Though you may not be able to avoid inflation completely, taking steps to protect your portfolio from it may mitigate some of its impact and help keep you on track to your goals.
