Real estate

Real estate is generally a “good investment” during times of inflation, according to Buffett.

“They’re the businesses that you buy once and then you don’t have to keep making capital investments subsequently. So, you do not face the problem of continuous reinvestments involving greater and greater dollars because of inflation,” he said during the 2015 Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting.

But, while real estate might be a good investment, its barrier to entry can be difficult to cross. 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.

Stocks pricing power

Buffett has been around the block a few times, experiencing many highs and lows in the U.S. economy. He has managed a stock portfolio through periods of double-digit inflation rates in the 1970s and has plenty of insight on what to own when consumer prices spike.

Buffett likes high-quality businesses with low capital needs, such as Apple. The technology company boasts some impressive financial metrics — a testament to the company's efficiency, strength and negotiating power — which have enabled it to thrive during this period of inflation.

Gold

While Buffett is known for being uninterested in gold investing — describing it in a 2011 letter to shareholders as an asset “that will never produce anything” — while other money mavens consider it to be a solid hedge against inflation because its purchasing power has remained relatively stable over time.

If you’re keen on taking advantage of gold’s financial benefits, opening a Gold IRA with Rosland Capital might be the place to start.

By opening a Gold IRA, you’re looking out for your future self and cushioning your retirement. Opting for a Gold IRA gives you the opportunity to diversify your portfolio and stabilize your finances.
