Fees & Charges
The good news about Stanley Gibbons Investments’ charges and fees is – there are none.
Unlike many other ‘regular’ investment products, we levy no management or transaction fees and there are no annual charges for you to pay.
This makes an investment with Stanley Gibbons very competitive and even more attractive as an option.
In fact, in an independent, academic study in 2009 by Dimson & Spaenjers, the performance of GB stamps was compared against equities between 1900 and 2000; equities annualised performance showed growth of 5% with stamps at 3% but absolutely on a par once the transaction costs were taken into account.
In fact, if only the top investment grade stamps (as offered to you by Stanley Gibbons) had been reflected in this study as opposed to the whole GB stamp market, on this basis, they would have comfortably outperformed equities.
As a further benefit, we even fully insure and store your stamps, coins, medals or manuscripts for you in our secure vaults in Guernsey free of charge (keeping these prestige, heritage assets in optimum condition is in our long term interests).
So, how do we make our money? We simply charge you a performance-related commission on exit, typically a 80/20 split of any profit (you get 80% of any profit, we get 20%), depending on the product you choose. So we rely on picking the right portfolio for you and the continued strength of the market.
