The era of high interest rate has finally set in after more than a decade of cheap money. While high interest rate can create hardship towards an over leveraged investor, fortune may favour the timid. As borrowers see their variable interest repayment skyrocketed approximately 3 times within the last two years, conservative savers have seen their short-term savings interest increased drastically giving them potentially higher yield than riskier investors in 2022.
Of course, no one knows how beneficial/tumultuous this high interest rate will last. The last time interest rates were this high has resulted in a Global Financial Crisis where borrowers struggle to pay their mortgage instalments causing worldwide systemic issue. The result was a steep decline in interest rate lasting for more than a decade.
For savers, if you are looking to sustain this high interest rate pay out benefit without the uncertainty of reinvestment risk for a decade or two, and if you seek guaranteed income and potentially higher yield than fixed income products with liquidity in the medium to long term, take a look at China Taiping Infinite Harvest Plus.
