CHICAGO, IL, February 02, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Does the mutual funds in your 401(k) include multinationals? And if so, how might this reality potentially effect the performance of your retirement plan? With the recent concern over tariffs taking center stage in the eyes of most investors, the issue surrounding these questions are surprisingly taking a back seat, and with possibly alarming consequences.
This view is expressed by Anthony Rhodes, the owner of wealth management firm The Planning Perspective (www.theplanningperspective.com) in a posting on his popular How To Invest blog entitled "Gigantism" ( http://www.howtoinvestblog.net/2016/11/gigantism.html ). "The current low inflation environment is great for consumers and corporate growth domestically, but multinationals are having to deal with a very strong U. S. dollar, and as a result, aren't feeling as excited," he stated.
The post describes the important connection that exists between inflation and multinational corporations, and explains why investors should be aware of the ramifications that propagate within that relationship. "Many of these companies hold standard positions within our 401(k)'s and other defined benefit plans, but most investors are unaware of the overall effect that they may be contributing to the value of their portfolios," he closed.
