TL;DR Invest now to reduce inflationary risk or wait until a plausible bubble burst?

Finally convinced a family friend, who is 5 years from retiring, to invest his large sum of cash holdings into a a passive ETF (i.e., voo, spy, ivv, etc.). He has never invested in the stock market before because he didn't have any prior knowledge/fear, but is now worried inflation will eat away years of savings. There is a lot of talk of a bubble bursting soon tho, so not sure what to recommend?
