Rare Stamps

It is the perfect Warren Buffet style investment. Ironically, the master himself has participated in this asset class…

This is an investment opportunity that will guarantee your capital for the term of your investment to remove your risk. Investing in rare stamps has historically:

• Shown a strong and stable track record of performance
• Not been impacted by the vagaries of the economy
• Provided diversification, into a safe, tangible asset
• Provided a strong potential hedge against inflation (actually performing best in times of high inflation)
• Been easy to trade internationally to avoid exchange rate risks

In true Warren Buffet style, the compounding of returns makes this investment exciting in the long term. A 13% compound return turns a £100,000 investment into over £1 million in just under 20 years’ time.

Not many investors know of this opportunity. This is an exclusive chance for you to join the ultra-rich in one of their favoured asset classes used throughout history to protect their wealth.

Rare stamps.
Over the past two years, whilst the world descended into economic chaos, the rare stamp market continued as if nothing was happening.
Rather than “forced sellers”, the rare stamp market experienced the opposite.
No one wants to sell their stamp collection right now – collectors are better off with the stamps than the cash. This is putting a real supply squeeze on fresh material coming onto the market. This can only mean one thing for prices in the near term if this situation does not change.
Many financial advisers are simply not aware of rare stamps as an investment product. Indeed, they have been referred to in the past by one financial commentator as “the best investment you have never heard of”.

A recent report from the European Fine Art Foundation (EFAF) highlighted a major shift in “luxury spending habits”.
Wealthy buyers are seen to be switching from expensive cars, yachts and jets in favour of assets with long-term tangible value such as collectibles.

The EFAF refer to rare stamps as “investments of passion” and notes how this market has flourished during the recent economic downturn.
