Email of the day on preserving purchasing power

Dear Eoin, I may not be the only Europe-based investor who is currently facing the following dilemma. My income and expenditure are both in Euros. I have protected and increased my wealth and income by investing in USA stocks which have given me both capital appreciation and currency increase. Now the USA dollar looks over-valued and all equity options appear to be unfavourable. In addition, inflation is high and so holding liquidity means losing real spending power. What are the alternatives on offer?

Eoin Treacy's view

Thank you for this question which touches on a topic everyone has an interest in at present. Inflation has been described as the thief which comes in the night, but lately it feels like bandits are roaming around the house in broad daylight.
