Safe haven investments: gold speculators seek viable alternative

Once viewed as a safe haven, one expert believes gold is a speculation rather than an investment

Investors are being warned that gold is currently a risky investment, despite its strong performance during the financial crisis.

Yogi Dewan, the chief executive of London-based Hassium Asset Management, told the BBC that gold "remains in bubble territory", adding that "anyone buying at these levels is basically speculating, not investing".

While gold is up 17.70% in the past year, there have been signs recently that the bubble may already have burst, with its value down 5.82% in the last 30 days.

Like gold, rare postage stamps have been a traditional safe haven for those looking to hedge their investments.

Yet, unlike gold, many investors remain confident in the profit-potential of postage stamps for the foreseeable future.

The reasons to invest in postage stamps are compelling.

Take, the 1910 2d Tyrian Plum.

In2007 a mounted mintexample wasvalued at65,000 ($102,230), according to the GB30 Rarities StampIndex. In 2011 the index listed the stampat100,000 ($157,290).

That's an 8.99% pa rise in five years.

Just 12 are known to exist, making them one of the world's greatest rarities.

Last monthone of the 12 sold for 102,000 ($159,500) at auction in London.

We have asingle example available to you today for 85,000 (approx. $133,700), 15% below the index valuation. We believe this is the only Tyrian Plum available for sale in the worldtoday.
