Top 10 reasons why so many investors are adding rare collectibles to their portfolios
1) Historic returns
Rare collectibles such as stamps and coins have proven a good investment over the very long term (ie. 50 years+). Salomon Brothers rate rare stamps among the top four investments of the 20th Century, giving an average annual return of 10%.
Time and time again throughout history, financial wealth has been destroyed when there is a stock market or real estate price crash, as most investors are overexposed in these areas. Investing in rare tangible assets provides a means of broadening your investment profile.
3) Low correlation with traditional investments
Investments in collectible tangible assets have, historically, been broadly unaffected by political and economic vagaries and therefore can offer a form of protection and insulation to an element of your net worth. Market prices are led by the activities of collectors, not investors, leading to low volatility.
4) Benefit of limited supply
Rare collectibles are inherently scarce and have an ever diminishing supply with loss through damage, destruction and donations to museums. This diminishing supply against increasing demand provides a strong economic argument for causing pricing pressure leading to rising prices.

5) Pride of ownership
Excellent long term investment returns are complimented by the wonderful feeling of pride from owning important pieces of history. No other alternative investment can offer such an eclectic range of benefits and emotions. We take pride in the fact that some of our investors develop their portfolios into award winning international collections; an achievement which gives added interest, provenance and value to their collection.
6) Rising global demand
Baby boomers now own 80% of the world's wealth: As they enter retirement, baby boomers are returning to hobbies of their youth and investing some of their disposable wealth on their hobbies such as rare collectibles.
By 2030 some 2 billion extra people will be in the middle-class bracket, Goldman Sachs predicts: This demographic produces the majority of investment-grade collectors.
The emerging BRIC economies (Brazil, Russia, India and China): The rapidly expanding middle-class in these emerging economies is dramatically increasing the number of new entrants into the collectibles market.
7) Tax benefits
Rare collectibles are a tangible asset and investment returns represent a capital gain. This provides distinct tax planning advantages. In the US, capital gains benefit from lower tax rates of 0%, 15% or 20% depending on your taxable income and filing status. You should seek advice from your financial adviser on the tax planning options available.
8) Highly portable
Collectibles benefit from being highly portable and can be internationally traded in all currencies, with prices obtained largely constant wherever you sell them.
The total annual sales value of the collectibles market is estimated at £100 billion.
It is fair to say that the internet has created true globalisation in the rare collectibles market. eBay is the largest online seller with approximately £4.5 billion sales of collectibles per annum. Excluding eBay, it is estimated that the value of the online collectibles market is around £10 billion per annum. This is forecast to increase to £20 billion over the next three years based on recent growth rates as the market progressively becomes more comfortable trading online.
10) Family heirloom
Rare collectibles represent family heirlooms, which can be passed down through the generations as a secure means of protecting and growing wealth over the very long term.
