Inflation is galloping all over the world. Nevertheless, I believe that in these difficult times, stock markets still offer the best investment hedge against inflation and excellent long-term return potential for carefully selected stocks.

At equal invested value, the portfolio has grown by 69.6% over the last three years (+19.2% per year). Although past performance is not indicative of future performance, over the medium to long term, I expect the overall portfolio to outperform the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 indices.

One or two of the stocks may disappoint. Therefore, I will actively manage the portfolio and replace stocks with deteriorating prospects.
