The real-money Inflation-Protected Income Growth portfolio has so far met its primary goal of building an income stream that grows at least as fast as inflation. Still, there are no guarantees. In this brief video, portfolio manager Chuck Saletta confesses three things he's worried about when it comes to the long-term success of that portfolio and what he's doing to try to mitigate those risks.

Summary:

  • He can't predict the future.
  • He doesn't know when things will go wrong.
  • He can't always tell when an executive is being overoptimistic about the future.

But what Chuck can do is the same thing you can do with your portfolio in an effort to invest in a way that buffers against those risks.
