09 Sep The case for using real assets to hedge inflation
With inflation levels the highest in 40 years and the Fed dramatically raising rates to combat inflation, institutional investors are increasingly recognizing the benefits of exposure to real assets, specifically focusing on natural resources, infrastructure and real estate.
