An insight into investing with Stanley Gibbons
This short video provides a window into investing with Stanley Gibbons and in rare tangible assets. It includes the perspective of a client, a wealth manager and Managing Director of Investment, Keith Heddle. Please be aware that as with any investment, past performance is not necessarily a guarantee of future returns.
Potentially, there has never been a better time to invest in stamps, coins and books. Amidst the global economic turmoil of the last decade, rare stamps, coins and first edition books have in contrast, remained secure, profitable and continued to grow in value as measured by Stanley Gibbons Indices, which are listed on Bloomberg Professional™ Services.
These heritage, tangible assets have often proven an excellent choice for anyone seeking alternative investment strategies to diversify their portfolio, hedge against inflation and anchor against market volatility. With increasing demand from a growing middle classes and a finite supply, this is an asset class that looks likely to remain a wise investment (though of course the past is no guarantee for the future).
Is this the right investment for you?
If you are looking for yields, dividends or a quick return on your investment then rare stamps and other prestige collectibles are not right for you. For most of our clients, investment in stamps and other rare assets offers a reassuring ‘anchor’ with portfolios invested mid to long-term over 5-10 years. If you are looking to protect and grow your wealth, plan for retirement or create a legacy investment we have a range of opportunities to offer you.
A name you can trust
Trust, security and expertise cannot be underestimated when looking after your wealth. Located in the heart of London and with offices worldwide, Stanley Gibbons has been the home of rare and valuable stamps since 1856. We are a globally recognised name and a brand synonymous with quality, experience and what The Times newspaper calls “an unblemished reputation for expertise and honest dealing”. Furthermore, we have held the Royal Warrant for services to philately since 1914, a true mark of quality and dependability. With the acquisition of Baldwin’s (est. 1872) rare coin merchants of distinction, we now offer the same specialisation in valuable coins as we do in stamps.
