Yes, inflation is here. The good news is that there is something you can do about it. Now is the time for investors to put an inflation hedging plan in place. Many tangible assets have proven the test of time to help investors during an inflationary era.
Investors can consider everything from precious metals like gold, silver, and even crypto to architecture, real estate, and even REITs. There is an investing strategy right for you, no matter where you are on your investor journey (Gen Z, Millennial, or retiree).
TheStreet has assembled an all-star panel of experts who are well equipped to advise us on inflation-protecting investments and investments that benefit from an inflationary environment.

- Gold vs. crypto: "The new generation is looking at this as a gold alternative. And since cryptocurrencies have come out, clearly the total returns well, well exceed that of gold and really everything else. And on a calendar year basis, cryptocurrencies have outperformed gold almost every year since they launched, specifically talking about Bitcoin. I think it's interesting, and I think it deserves a spot in the portfolio." said Schassler.
- Gen Z and Millennials: "In all likelihood, there's not going to be enough money for them (Gen Z). So they really have to turn to themselves to take care of their future. It's always been there, but I think it's more critical now today for young people in their teens, 20s, 30s, 40s to be prepared for that. And for them to be prepared for that is to be a little bit more aggressive on the risk curve and take advantage of the opportunities that are there," said Lang.
- The Federal Reserve: "We live in a debt-fueled economy. It exists because interest rates are low. As soon as you start to increase interest rates, you're going to see stress cracks throughout. And that's going to force recession. So I don't see their ability to dramatically increase rates," said Schassler.
