About the session

Global inflation rates have been spiking with no end in sight. The Federal Reserve has also signalled its resolve in curbing higher prices through raising rates, and has done so aggressively in recent months. 

In these times of uncertainty, those seeking out passive income may be stuck on choosing their investing options.
