2022 saw rising inflation, soaring gilt yields, and a dramatic fall in global equities. How should pension investors adjust their portfolios to the new market environment?

In October 2020, with Covid-19 lockdowns still in place across much of the world, UK CPI inflation stood at only 0.7%, the Bank of England (BoE) base rate had been stuck at 0.1% for several months and UK 15-year gilt yields averaged 0.61%, close to all-time lows.

Only two years later, UK inflation would reach a more than 40-year high of 11.1%, the BoE was on the cusp of raising rates to 3% and 15-year gilt yields had soared to 4.8%, their highest level in nearly 15 years.
