Notably, an allocation to real assets can be used to help investors enhance portfolio diversification, gain exposure to global growth, and hedge against the impact of inflation. As the current environment progresses, it is a good time to consider the impact of inflation and an allocation to real assets.

Plus, recent indications from the Fed continue to indicate a potentially more aggressive approach to tightening. In developed countries, inflation had languished below the central bank’s target level for many years.
