How to Invest
Quick returns are not the allure of rare stamps, coins or books. So it is important that you get into this market with a medium to long term horizon, for example over 5-10 years, looking for capital appreciation rather than yield, income or dividends. We recommend that you save that for other parts of your investment portfolio. Slow but steady is what helps keep the market for rare collectibles stable unlike other more ‘easily influenced’ markets that experience high volatility – “quiet wealth” is what some people have called it.
Rare stamps, coins and books are not liquid in the traditional sense; they need to find collectors and investors ready to buy. This prevents panic buying and selling and helps keep your investment safe. But when you are ready to liquidate your portfolio we offer you structured exit options to sell your stamps, coins or books and realise your return. These include:
Please note that we charge no management or insurance fees. Instead we take a percentage share as our commission (variable depending on length and type of portfolio) but only on any profit that is made – so if there is no profit, there is no charge at all.
