  • Normally, Telegraph Money advocates the “get rich slow” approach.
  • Companies that would do well if inflation rose include banks, which make more money when interest rates go up (as they might do to control inflation), companies with strong brands that can raise prices, such as consumer goods groups Unilever and Diageo, as well as mining and oil companies which would benefit from rising commodity prices.
  • If the experts are wrong and inflation never appears, then investment trusts which own fast-growing technology companies, such as Scottish Mortgage or Allianz Technology Trust, could perform well.
