Impact of Inflation

Impact of Inflation

Your capital is guaranteed, so you will not lose money in absolute terms if it stays in a deposit account. 

However, in real terms, inflation can have an impact. Prices rise over time so what you can buy in five, ten, twenty years with that capital is likely to be less than you can buy with it today. Of course, your capital earns interest which can help to mitigate any inflationary effects, but sometimes that interest payment will be higher than the rate of inflation and sometimes that interest will be lower. 

Please Note:

Past performance is no guide to the future. The value of investments can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you invested. 

When investing internationally changes in currency exchange rates may affect the value of an investment. Smaller companies and emerging markets carry higher level of risk than larger, more established companies and markets. Consequently, the suitability of any particular stock market investment depends on your personal circumstances and your attitude to risk.
