How to turn a hobby into a profitable investment

And… benefit from interest free credit over 6 months

We want to help you build a valuable collection. That is our raison d'être.

Our “Build a Collection” service is the most popular service we provide to our clients.

Demand for this service has increased by 300% during the pandemic.

During lockdowns, people have found happiness and personal fulfilment from taking on new hobbies and engaging more online to reduce the feelings of isolation.

We are pleased to have been able to help so many of our clients during this most difficult period of time.

Not only have our clients told us how much they have enjoyed seeing their valuable collections blossom…

Many are also very pleased to see how this has worked for them to protect and grow their wealth in a way not correlated with the uncertain and volatile economic climate.

Our “Build a Collection” service is the easy and enjoyable way to build a valuable collection…

  1. We take out all the stress by making sure you only buy high quality rare and authentic collectibles with a strong track record of long term healthy price appreciation. 
  2. You have absolute control. You still choose what you want to add to your collection.

Many of our clients use this service to build an investment in collectibles with a long term perspective.

Some are using it as a means of diversifying their pension pot for retirement.

Others are using it to save for a future event such as school or university fees. 

Those with a very long term perspective see it as a legacy plan for children, grandchildren or godchildren. 

The beauty of it is that it works like a regular savings plan with an open-ended maturity date, which you control.

 You benefit from both the accumulation of your regular contributions and also from capital growth on your rare collectibles.

How our Build a Collection service works for you

It’s really straightforward…

It’s entirely up to you how much money you want to allocate to building your valuable collection.

The minimum requirement is to set up a monthly charge from you to Just Collecting of £100 per month or £300 per quarter.

There is no maximum (within reason!)

Your funds can be used to purchase any of our rare stamps and coins, precious historical treasures and memorabilia. You will be the legal owner of your collectibles which build over time.

You can also monitor how your collection grows in value over time as we will provide you with annual valuations.

What’s more, we allow you to purchase items with a value of up to 6 months of your planned regular payments in advance.

So, for example, if you sign up to make monthly payments of £1,000, you can acquire collectibles with a value of £6,000 up-front.

Then, in six months when the balance on your account is £0, you can buy a further £6,000 of collectibles and so forth.

You benefit from a perpetual initial 6-month interest free credit period paid over six months in equal instalments.

As a cash and asset rich company, we can afford to provide these preferential credit terms to our “Build a Collection” clients.

Also, you are not tied in to any commitment. You can cancel your monthly payments at any time.

We are completely flexible in making this work for you regardless of whether you are a knowledgeable and passionate collector or simply see rare collectibles as a valuable tangible asset to own.

The 3 most common ways our existing clients make this service work best for their requirements are as follows:

1. Specialised Collectors 

Specialised collectors have a narrow focus in what they want to purchase. They are building a collection in a specific area. Those clients use this service mainly to benefit from the 6 months’ interest free credit available.

Such collectors usually make purchases from us based on our ability to source specific items in their area of interest from our international network of contacts.

2. General Collectors

General collectors have a wider range of interests and often across different areas such as stamps, coins, art and autographs. Those clients use this service often as a means of creating a clear budgetary plan on how much they wish to allocate to their hobbies.

These clients normally make purchases directly from items featured in our e-mail newsletters, but also from browsing our entire stock of collectibles on our website.

3. Tangible Asset Investors 

Investors want to build a valuable collection over time and benefit from our experience and advice on items best suited for their long term investment potential. We put forward recommendations and our clients choose which items they want to add to their collection.

These clients benefit from a clear allocation of capital to their tangible asset investments as well as making purchases and, in some cases, enjoying capital appreciation before making payment.

We also do our best to make sure clients can buy at below retail market values. Take a look at the example below…
