What are the effects of global inflation on our day-to-day lives? Beyond the prices of groceries and gas, how is it impacting long-term savings, such as pensions and investments?
In a one-on-one interview with Tamar Uriel-Beeri, Managing Editor of jpost.com, Nadav Ofir, global fixed income analyst at Bank Hapoalim’s trading room, explains how inflation has affected interest rates worldwide, and how the repricing of securities in the market is causing yields to rise on specific investments that have performed poorly in the past.
As inflation continues to rise both in Israel and around the world, Ofir explains why now may be a good time for patient investors to invest in the market and why those looking for short-term gains may want to wait before investing significantly.
The behavior of the stock market in recent months has shown investors, says Ofir, that investors need to consider the degree of risk with which they feel comfortable, which can only be evaluated on an individual basis.
Ofir and Uriel-Beeri also discuss how the Israeli tech sector has been affected by slowdowns in the technology field and the effects of inflation on the real estate sector.
