Alternative investments provide diversity amid S&P uncertainty

Alternative investments are increasingly attractive as S&P warns of debt ratings fall in Eurozone

European stocks fell on Tuesday (December 6th) following Standard and Poor's (S&P) announcement that it could be set to lower its long-term debt projection ratings for almost all Eurozone countries.

The announcement had a similar impact in Asia, where the MSCI Asia Pacific Index (MXAP) fell by 1.4%.

And with S&P planning to publish its conclusions shortly after the EU summit, which ends on Friday, investors are bracing themselves for the potential of further losses.

Such uncertainty is prompting increasing numbers of investors to consider alternative investments in an effort to give their portfolios greater diversity.

The security offered by rare autographs looks particularly tempting at the moment to those wishing to hedge their assets, thanks to the market's steady upward progression in the past decade.

Take James Dean.

His memorabilia has been in great demand in recent years.

A pair of his jeans sold for $35,850 at auction in 2006, and the actor's autograph has risen in valueat a rate of 20.55% pa since 2000, according to the sector's PFC40 Autograph Index.

We have a superb photograph, signed by Dean, currently available for 18,500 (approx. $29,000).

It is one of the best Dean autographed items we've ever seen: a wonderful alternative investment opportunity.
