Investing and Money Glossary, terms and definitions.

Inflation risk

The risk that our money will not be worth as much in the future. That's because the cost of the things we need to buy, such as like housing, clothing and medical care all increase. Guaranteed investments like bank accounts do not keep pace with inflation.
