Real estate

Real estate is a well-known hedge against inflation. As the price of raw materials and labor goes up, new properties are more expensive to build. And that drives up the price of existing real estate.

Well-chosen properties can provide more than just price appreciation. Investors also get to earn a steady stream of rental income.

Luckily, there are plenty of platforms out there that allow you to invest in real estate with ease.

First National Realty Partners makes it easy for accredited investors to grow their returns through multi-family real estate, along with related opportunities in grocery-anchored, necessity-based retail space.

Through FNRP’s online platform, accredited investors can collect quarterly cash flow through a diverse real estate portfolio. FNRP’s team of experts manages every component of the investment life cycle for you and vets each deal against a rigorous set of investment criteria so you know your money is in good hands.

Gold

Investing in gold is often considered the go-to inflation-fighting move.

It can’t be printed out of thin air like fiat money, and its value is largely unaffected by economic events around the world.

And because of the precious metal’s safe-haven status, investors often rush toward it in times of crisis, making it an effective hedge.

These days, you don’t even have to go to a bullion shop to buy precious metals. There are plenty of online platforms that offer a wide selection of gold and silver bars and coins and fair pricing.

Additionally, you can combine the recession-resistant nature of gold with the tax benefits of an IRA by opening a Gold IRA with help from American Hartford Gold.

Artwork

You might think that investing in fine art by the likes of Banksy and Andy Warhol is only an option for the ultra-rich.

But with an investing platform called Masterworks, you can invest in iconic artworks too, just like Jeff Bezos and Peggy Guggenheim.

On average, contemporary artworks appreciate in value by 14% per year, which is significantly higher than the average returns of 9.5% you’d see with the S&P 500.

And investing with Masterworks lets you bypass a lot of the drawbacks of art investing — you won’t need to scour garage sales looking for a lost work by a master, and you won’t have to scramble to find a buyer if you need to sell your shares fast.
