How To Make Money When Interest Rates Are Rising

Since 2020, the US Federal Reserve has been raising the federal funds rate to 4.75-5% in an attempt to tame the rampant inflation that has reached 40-year highs. As a result central banks all around followed suit and raised their interest rates as well putting an end to the era of ultra low rates which saw many making money in equity markets and properties. In Malaysia, Bank Negara has been raising the overnight policy rate to 2.75% from 1.75% in 2020, the lowest level on record. Chong Jin Yoong shares his thoughts on why the governments are raising rates and how it impacts your money.
