This session explains how inflation risk affects plan participants at different life stages, with a focus on retirees and near-retirees. The session first covers the behavior of different asset classes in an inflationary environment. We then explore how an income-focused allocation can help plan participants protect their retirement consumption from inflation, as well as other relevant risks such as those related to changes in interest rates and equity markets.
