At the end of October 2021, the Consumer Price Index was up 6.2% from a year earlier. Meanwhile, investors have poured money into Morningstar Categories that provide a hedge against inflation: commodities broad basket, commodities focused, and inflation-protected bond. This increase has closely followed the Consumer Price Index over the past three years. As price levels increased, so did flows into these categories.
