Somehow the $28,852,576.06 Man just doesn’t have the same ring to it, but that’s what it would be in 2014 with inflation.
Inflation is a real thing, even if it’s been incredibly low as of late. With quantitative easing and a zero interest rate policy by the Fed, it’s actually been unusually low and for a sustained time frame.
I think it’s reasonable to expect inflation in the future, whether that’s 2, 5, or 10 years.
There are some investments that are less interest rate and inflation sensitive than others, so keep that in mind when crafting a well diversified portfolio. If you have questions about your portfolio, I’m just a phone call away.
