Inflation is a constant threat for income investors. If your income fails to keep pace with inflation, the amount of goods and services you will be able to buy with your income will fall over time.
Our inflation calculator shows the potential effect of inflation on your savings. Simply choose an investment period and see how much income you will have to produce just to overcome an inflation rate of 2%.
Your savings will need to produce a higher income than the amount lost to inflation if you are to maintain your purchasing power.
This tool shows the accumulated loss of purchasing power caused by an estimated inflation rate of 2% per annum. The tool calculates the percentage of your savings lost to inflation over the selected time period and is for illustrative purposes only.
