Gold shines bright whilst stock markets plunge

Categories: Invest

With stock markets in turmoil as a result of global stress and economic uncertainty, it’s no surprise that investment gold, typically regarded as a safe haven asset, is proving more popular than ever before. 

Andrew Dickey, Precious Metals Divisional Director at The Royal Mint commented: “We are certainly seeing customers allocating more precious metals to their investment portfolio as the stock market continues to fall. We’ve also noticed an increasing number of new customers buying gold, silver or platinum investment products from us for the very first time. If you are looking to invest in gold, The Royal Mint works tirelessly to offer a product suite that caters to every type of customer, whatever your budget.”
