A safe haven?

* past performance is not a guide to the future.
returns can go down as well as up.

There's some good dividend yields out there if your prepared to handle slightly more risk/volatility.

Yep, invested a lot of money in NS&I index linked bonds - tax free too. RPI (not CPI) + 1% and no tax - sounds like a good deal to me.

...oh and you can take your money out at any time and if you leave it in for at least a year you will still benefit from the interest.

Yes, the whole scenario has smelled of ultimate hyper-inflation for a long time. you'll maybe have to go through a few months of deflation first though, so don't be surprised. Since 1948, there have only been seven months where RPI (RP04) has been in negative territory (1995/60) when the maximum was -0.8%. Given the massive asset destruction this time around, perhaps we shall see some lower figures than this.

Anyone got any ideas of size?

Not I, sorry. I only want to keep out of it, as with a bar-room fight.
