How to invest in the next 10 years (with high inflation)

Over the past few years, the global economy has undergone profound transformations, shaped by the surge of inflation and the restrictive measures adopted by central banks around the world.
This scenario implies an epochal change in mentality for investing in the next 10 years compared to how it was done in the previous twenty years.
High inflation, destined to persist over time, requires a new and flexible perspective to obtain positive returns in a challenging economic context.
How to Invest in the Era of High Inflation High inflation is expected to remain a constant presence over the next decade.
This scenario is fueled by raw material shortages, reshoring of corporate production and labor shortages in critical roles, partly due to demographic changes.
These conditions, according to experts, will have a direct impact on the volatility and returns of assets that have shone in the last ten years.
Investors will therefore have to adopt new strategies to thrive in this new financial environment.
For investors with a long-term view, the expert from the Swiss private bank recommends focusing primarily on global stocks.
This approach is particularly suitable for those who have assets between 1 and 5 million euros.
“If you have a long-term horizon, the best thing is to buy stocks,” said Charles-Henry Monchau, chief investment officer of Swiss private bank Syz, underlining the importance of a long-term perspective in an environment of high inflation.
For those who can invest smaller sums (50-100 thousand euros), the best strategy to follow is the one suggested by David Dietze, senior investment strategist at Peapack Private Wealth Management: 25% in an index fund on the S&P 500, 25% in ETFs broad market, 25% in an international index fund, 25% in fixed income index ETFs.
Dietze issues a warning, however: “$50,000 is probably not enough money to invest in individual stocks or bonds, so mutual funds would be needed.” 3 stocks to buy and hold for 10 years Long-term oriented investors stand out for their ability to look beyond temporary fluctuations in stock markets.
Their preference is for shares of stable and reliable companies, whose performance is evaluated over a period of years or even decades.
However, in the current environment of high inflation, it is essential to also consider this factor in investment decisions.
In fact, traditional historical performance metrics may prove to be less than indicative for identifying the best investment opportunities for the next 10 years.
It is therefore essential to adopt a broader and more flexible perspective, focusing on companies with solid fundamentals and strong resilience to market challenges.
Here is a selection of 3 stocks identified by TheMotleyFool: 1) Brookfield Infrastructure US President Joe Biden has declared that the next 10 years will be the "age of infrastructure".

The ability of low-cost index funds to generate long-term returns is well known: numerous studies have shown that a “buy and hold” approach can be more profitable than researching investment trends.

Not only does this approach require much less work, but it also generates much less stress, allowing you to accrue significant profits.
