The inflation is skyrocketing with 9.7% in March 2022 according to CBS (the Dutch central bureau of statistics). It is at its highest point in more than 40 years, since April 1976 to be precise.

How does this impact you?

Inflation is an average increase in prices and means that life becomes more expensive. Something that cost you 100 euros last year, costs you a whole lot more today. The painful thing about inflation is that the interest on your savings account is 0%, so while prices rise, your savings remain at the same level and are actually worth less because you can buy less for it.

So now what?

Unfortunately, you don't control inflation, but you have a choice on what you can do with your savings. Investing it.

📉 Stocks? 

Looking at the stock market over the past few months, it is not an obvious choice either, as it remains very volatile and has been in decline. The AEX (the index of the 25 largest traded companies on the Amsterdam stock exchange) has already fallen 9% since the beginning of this year.
