The issue of inflation is becoming more and more relevant in all parts of the world as some products present increases in their prices, this, together with other international factors and those of each country, including the World Bank, had lowered the growth perspective from 6.7% to 4.1% for Latin America during the past year.

Jamez Hernández, president and co-founder of Trust Corporate, says in this regard, “in a few months we have seen how the cost of living has increased many times exceeding our income and budgets. This has been the consequence of a series of events that have affected the global economy, such as the paralysis of production systems during the pandemic and the war between Russia and Ukraine, that has unleashed the uncertainty of what may happen in the future”.

That is why it is important to pay attention to personal finances to try to ensure that inflation damages them as little as possible, for this Trust Corporate, a consulting firm dedicated to financial, legal and accounting issues, presents 5 tips.
