The Stanley Gibbons GB30 Rarities Index

Over the past 5 years, as financial and stock markets tumbled, the GB30 Rarities Index rose by 68.3%.
The compound return of the index since inception at 31 December 1998 is 319.2%. This equates to an average annual compound return of 10.8%.
5 Reasons to Invest in Rare Stamps
✔ Stamps are a tangible asset, not correlated with any other asset class so unaffected by standard economic vagaries
✔ Rare stamps have been historically very stable, rising in value through 2 World Wars (diminishing supply), 2 economic crashes and the period of hyper inflation in the 1970s
✔ Stamps have actually shown an average annual return of 10.8% over the last 40 years
✔ Those ‘in the know,’ largely the rich and famous have used stamps to protect and grow their wealth for centuries – from the British Royal Family, to the Rothschilds, to Eli Lilly, to Warren Buffet, to Bill Gross of Pimco
✔ You will own a valuable asset, rich in history, available to be traded – not a ‘virtual’ unit trust or a share in a company that could be at the mercy of the market, changing consumer trends or poor management decisions.
