SAFE expert outlines how to earn interest despite high inflation

Folsom, Calif. – (Aug. 19, 2022) – In a piece appearing online in Comstock's Magazine Thursday, SAFE Credit Union's Chief Financial Officer Chris Harris outlines how everyday investors can still earn interest despite high inflation.

In the practical and timely piece, "Want to Guard Against Inflation? This Advice Could Help" Harris provides information on a trending investment strategy as well as tips on managing personal budgets in our current economic climate.

"Like everything in life, these challenging times can also offer opportunities," writes Harris, adding, government-issued Series I Bonds are a viable option. "Unlike the days where it took 30 years for that $50 or $100 savings bond to reach maturity, I Bonds are purchased at their face value (a $25 bond is purchased for $25) and interest is compounded semi-annually for 30 years."
