US President Joe Biden and the Fed’s chair met on Tuesday to discuss the ongoing inflationary crisis. This crisis isn’t limited to the US but is escalating across the globe. The UK is also facing inflationary headwinds and a cost-of-living crisis has been spiralling in the country.

The UK economy might even be headed towards a recession due to a similar stance of monetary tightening adopted by the country, just like the US.

Concerns about aggressive monetary policy tightening and more rate hikes have been increasing in the UK. Amid this chaos, safe-haven investments like gold are on the radar of investors. Instead of buying gold directly, investors can go for purchasing the shares of gold mining companies, which may potentially provide them with better returns as compared to the physical metal.
