Industry Voice: Are real assets the solution to inflation?

Are you worried about inflation eroding your portfolio's value? The Aviva Investors survey has shown that more investors are turning to real assets as a solution.

The survey found that a significant 53% of investors use real assets to inflation-proof their portfolios, up from 33% just three years ago. This trend is evident across all regions, including Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific.

While diversification remains a key driver for investing in real assets, capital preservation is also becoming an important reason. Over one-third of institutions named capital protection as their main reason for using real assets, up from 31% three years ago.

Long-term income generation is also becoming a popular reason, with 38% of institutions citing it as a reason.
