A better deal for our investors
The Collectibles Growth Plan (CGP) provides the best option on offer to our investors for years.
It is ideal if you are seeking an investment which combines the likelihood of healthy returns, yet offers a strong counterbalance of stability and security at the same time. Let me explain how and why.
1. Healthy returns: The beauty of the CGP is that it is underpinned by some of the best performing alternative asset classes in history, which show an almost unparalleled track record of success and have done for decades. Furthermore, growth is uncapped (unlike bonds or gilts, there is no fixed return), so the more the market rises, the more you benefit.
Finally, the CGP has a highly advantageous fee structure - unlike the majority of other investments, there are absolutely no charges, hidden or otherwise. There are no transaction, management, valuation, insurance, storage or annual charges.
Based on our buying power and expertise, we make a modest margin when we first buy the items (which goes largely to cover our processing and handling costs) and then we simply charge a performance-related commission on profit at the end of your term.
With the CGP this is 20% of any profit; you retain 80% of any profit on top of your original investment. In essence, we only profit if you do.
This simple and transparent structure is the key to a healthy return.
2. Stability and security: The prestige collectibles we deal in, primarily rare stamps and rare coins but also military medals and rare manuscripts, are not correlated with other mainstream asset classes. Time and again, for decades if not centuries, where the stock market and other markets have fluctuated and even crashed, our chosen asset classes have remained unaffected - not only that, but they have shown steady and unrelenting growth as evidenced in our published indices.
With compound annual growth figures of between 8% and 13%, these rises are outstripping many other traditional forms of investing. This has prompted interest from new private investors and institutions seeking to anchor a part of their portfolios, which further drives the market.
As you are undoubtedly aware, the outlook for the financial climate remains unsettled at best and bleak at worst. I would suggest, therefore, that the time to act to secure your finances is now.
Some other important points to consider when investing in a CGP with Stanley Gibbons:
To reiterate - there are none. We only charge a performance-related commission on exit, not at any other time. Compare that to the charging structure of equities or the majority of traditional investment options.
With the CGP, this commission is 20% of any profit made; you retain 80% of the profit on top of your original invested sum.
As one of our clients put it, "If I can't trust a company who deals with the Queen, who can I trust?" We are world-renowned for our expertise and have been for 155 years and it's also one of the reasons we were awarded and retain the Royal Warrant.
When you invest with us or buy from us, you can be guaranteed that you are getting absolutely genuine items with excellent provenance and of the highest quality - items that, due to their pristine condition, rarity and prestige, will be a real store of value. To substantiate this, we are the only merchant that can and does offer you a Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity on your items. With Stanley Gibbons peace of mind comes as standard.
Our pricing on rare stamps has been documented and publicly published for all to see since 1880. As for rare coins and medals, we buy largely at auction, so once again, pricing is transparent - but, once more, we buy where our expertise allows us to select items of the highest quality and greatest growth potential.
This means we can provide you in turn with a greater spread of positively performing options to balance and anchor your portfolio(s).
In today's climate, isn't an investment option that offers you balance, stability and growth from a company you can trust not worth serious consideration?
We look forward to being of service to you.
PS - The stock of rare coins, rare stamps and other prestige collectibles we hold is in a constant state of flux due to the demands of investors and major collectors. That's another reason for moving swiftly and decisively to invest with us, so you obtain an optimum spread of items for your portfolio.
