  In conclusion, the risks attached to cash and equities are different. And the returns attached to them can also change, as the experience of the last eighteen months clearly demonstrates.
As these risk-return dynamics evolve, the priorities of investors are also bound to change and the arguments for cash over equities may become more finely nuanced.
Nevertheless, it is important to remember that cash is far from a risk-free asset. Even at today’s best available savings rates, deposits are unlikely to maintain their value when inflation is taken into account.
Meanwhile, shares also carry risk, especially when held for shorter periods. But over longer periods, history suggests that equities offer investors a better chance of beating inflation.
For those investors looking towards the equity market in pursuit of inflation-beating returns, UK investment trusts represent a potentially appealing route to market. Schroders has a range of investment trusts that focus on specific opportunities, from UK or Asian equities through to European real estate, and from global innovation to social impact.
