- Although it is coming down globally, inflation remains high here in the UK.
- As a result, the Bank of England is expected to put interest rates up to at least 6% p.a. Whilst this makes cash rates look more attractive on the face of it, cash has historically often returned below inflation. In the past, the only way to grow savings ahead of inflation has been to invest.
- The good news is that higher rates also imply higher potential returns for many asset classes, bonds now offer higher yields than they did in the past. They often have higher yields than cash rates, and there is also potential for capital growth on top of the yield.
