Find out about an investment with a long, historical track record of both stability and growth.
It's a difficult time for investors.
In many cases, you won't be getting the returns you expected on traditional investments or your savings, with interest rates below inflation.
Stocks and shares are volatile, presenting opportunity but also high risk. Even gold, usually a faithful friend in an economic downturn, has shown fragility - it can still be dumped when there's a whiff of panic.
That's why canny investors are diversifying into other tangible asset classes.
The recent Natixis 2013 survey of global investors reports that 85% of HNWs are actively open to investing in alternatives so you're potentially in good company.
Some of the most sophisticated investors are diversifying into rare stamps and rare coins. These haven't just held their value, but actually shown returns of 216% and 248% respectively over the last 10 years.*
The reason for this growth is simple; supply and demand economics. There's a finite supply of the rarest stamps and coins and an increasing number of collectors and investors in the market. And we see no reason for this demand to slow down. What's more, because stamps and coins are unique asset classes driven by collectors, they're historically unaffected by market whims and speculation. That lack of correlation means that when other markets tumble, the rare stamp and rare coin markets plough on regardless.
And you don't have to know anything about stamps or coins to invest in them.

Stamps and coins as a viable investment class? Yes, I know it seems unlikely, but with historical data to back up our claims and 3 strong indices listed on Bloomberg professional to illustrate the point further, isn't it worth a look?
Why not do it quickly now while it's fresh in your mind?

The past is not necessarily a guide to future performance. Investing in equities can lose you part or all of your capital. The difference between the buy price and the sell price for smaller company shares can be significant. Profits from dealing in shares may be liable to tax - the level of tax and bases of reliefs from Tax are subject to change. Some of the shares recommended on this site will be smaller company shares. By their nature such investments can be relatively illiquid and thus hard to trade. And that makes such investments more of a high risk than larger company shares.
