"Cash is trash": How inflation impacts your money.

The value of money changes over time. What you can buy with $5 today might not be the same as what you can buy with $5 in a couple of months. This happens because the price of goods and services may rise as a result of increased demand for them or due to an increase in production costs, for example. The rate at which the general level of prices for goods and services rises, in turn, is what we call inflation.

Certain services (“Services”) offered through our mobile app are offered only in jurisdictions where it is legal to do so. The availability of the Services over the Internet is not a solicitation for or offering of the Services to any person in any jurisdiction where such solicitation or offering is illegal. We reserve the right to limit the availability of the Services to any person, geographic area, or jurisdiction, at any time and in our sole discretion.

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses of an Exchange Traded Fund (“ETF”) carefully before investing. Before investing in any ETF, you should consider its investment objective, risks, charges and expenses. Contact us at support@passfolioapp.com for a prospectus containing this information. Read it carefully. ETFs are subject to market fluctuation and the risks of their underlying investments. ETFs are subject to management fees and other expenses. ETF shares are bought and sold at market price, which may be higher or lower than their NAV, and are not individually redeemed from the fund. Investment returns will fluctuate and are subject to market volatility, so that an investor's shares, when redeemed or sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. ETFs are subject to risks similar to those of stocks. Some specialized exchange-traded funds can be subject to additional market risks. Leveraged and inverse exchange-traded products are not designed for buy and hold investors or investors who do not intend to manage their investment on a daily basis. These products are for sophisticated investors who understand their risks (including the effect of daily compounding of leveraged investment results), and who intend to actively monitor and manage their investments on a daily basis.

Be sure to consider your own financial situation, perform thorough research, and consult with a qualified tax professional before making any investment decisions concerning REITs. Investments in REITs and other real estate securities are subject to the same risks as direct investments in real estate. The real estate industry is particularly sensitive to economic downturns.
