In this paper, we consider a mean-variance portfolio selection problem with inflation hedging strategy for a defined contributory pension scheme. We establish the optimal wealth which involves a cash account and two risky assets for the pension plan member (PPM). The ecient frontier is obtained for the three asset classes which gives the PPM the opportunity to decide his or her own risk and wealth. It was found that inflation-linked bond is a suitableasset for hedging inflation risks in an investment portfolio.
