Inflation: Are your clients appropriately positioned?

It’s always difficult to time major shifts in growth, inflation and rates— and even harder to help your clients through these periods.

Canadians haven’t contended with such a sharp spike in price increases since 1991. Inflation has run at an annual average of 2.6% since its high in 1991 and has averaged 3.2% over the last decade.

Now in 2022, we are facing a new reality. While many of us never thought we’d see headline inflation near 8%, it can be even more startling when you look closer under the hood.

Share our investor infographic with your clients to help them understand why diversification is important in high inflation environments.
