Grossmeister Capital AG is an independent wealth management company
We create and maintain investment strategies to protect capital from inflation.
At the beginning of 2022, there was a long-term trend of money depreciation. We were among the first to launch four strategies to protect investor portfolios against inflation. This allows us to show real results today, confirming the relevance of our strategies.
Below you can find out why inflation is with us for the long haul, explore each strategy separately and see the actual charts of our inflation protection solutions.
The inflation is to stay for a long time
Why inflation has become a problem
- High inflation leads to depreciation of savings, poverty, hunger, social anxiety, loss of confidence in financial institutions and the state as a whole.
- Central banks are constrained in their tools to fight inflation due to the high indebtedness of the economy.
- Each investor must act independently and minimize personal damage through inflation-protection strategies. The state is powerless here.
- Strategies act as insurance: investing a small percentage of assets is enough to protect the entire portfolio.
First of all, we would like to introduce you to the term "commodity supercycle. The commodity supercycle takes into account the value of commodities in the world over the past 200 years - see chart. We're used to raw materials being affordable and available, but it hasn't always been that way. If the trend of the last 200 years continues, commodity prices will only rise in the next decades.
On the other hand, central banks pursued a policy of low interest rates, increasing the money supply in their economies. The critical point was the allowances and various monetary incentives that were used during the pandemic.
We believe that these circumstances were the starting point for the onset of the era of high inflation. More about each reason below.
Increase of commodities’ prices
According to the super-cycle, the cost of raw materials will rise. The reasons may be different: natural phenomena, global warming, man-made disasters, wars, disruption of supply chains or geopolitical tensions. Each of these events is already affecting today and may have its own impact on inflation in the future.
High level of indebtedness
Central banks fight inflation by raising interest rates. But because the economy is heavily indebted, their ability to do so is severely limited, as this would lead to mass bankruptcies and threaten the entire financial system.
In 2022, the world faces a worsening geopolitical crisis that inevitably calls into question the existence of the global economy. Increasing conflicts between countries lead to market fragmentation, which increases the imbalance of resources in global and local markets.
Inflation begets inflation
Rising prices are a source of high inflation going forward. We assume that prices will only rise and that cash will depreciate at an increasing rate. As of spring 2022, we are experiencing the highest inflation rates in 40 years, which is an unbiased confirmation of our prognosis.
Today we are seeing the highest inflation rates in the last 40 years, and they may remain at this level for many years to come.
