No matter how you invest your capital – no investment can escape the effects of inflation. That means that investors must also deal with the question of how to protect their portfolio against loss of purchasing power.

Successful investing is predicated on two factors: a diversified asset allocation and regular rebalancing. ETFs allow you to do both in a cost-effective manner.

ETF selection criteria

When selecting the right ETFs, it is not only the choice of asset class and underlying that counts. Investors also need clarity on a number of other key points.

Fixed income

Bonds can add stability to a portfolio, notably in times of uncertainty. To ensure that this does not detract from the overall portfolio return, the implementation of low-cost ETFs is recommended.
