Investment strategies to get your finances back on track

Todays news of a hike in train fares could have many of us searching for new investment strategies

For many in the City, the daily commute into one of London's railway hubs is an opportunity to get a start on the working day, or to tie up a few loose ends.

But from January, those using the train for business rather than pleasure may be inclined to work even harder than normal.

Today's announcement by the Association of Train Operating Companies that train fares are set to rise in the new year by an average 5.9% will do little to raise Christmas cheer following one of the toughest years for the economy in recent memory.

And it's not just on the railways that we'll be feeling the pinch.

A recent report by Britain's Institute of Fiscal Studies (IFS) warns that net income for the average household will drop by 7.4% during the three years to April 2013.

Those looking for investment strategies to fight back against the growing cost of living are increasingly turning to alternative assets, such as the strong autographs sector.

In the past 11 years we've seen the value of signed photographs by the former president of Cuba, Fidel Castro, rise by 22.20% pa, from 325 ($510) to 2,950 ($4,630). Take a look at the figures for yourself.

Castro's pre-eminence in the political world for the past 50 years, and the fact that he may not be around for much longer, ensure his signatureis in great demand.

A letter signed by Castro and other imprisoned Cuban revolutionaries in 1953 sold for $6,500 at auction in February 2007.

We have a superb poster, signed boldly by Castro, currently available for 1,750 (approx. $2,740).
