There has been increasing focus in the investment world in recent years on finding alternatives to the stock market. For many this has involved looking at property, at hedge funds and at private equity. The events of the past few years have highlighted the shortcomings of these different options. The true alternative investments, in our view, are those that are tangible and perhaps even portable. They can serve as a store of value in troubled times when stock markets are volatile, bond markets subject to inflation and fiat currencies depreciating in value. The aim of this book is to show investors and their advisors how they can use tangible assets like this as a means of diversifying a portfolio. Many investors may already own, or have inherited, investments like this: a stamp or coin collection, or a set of first editions. Or they may pursue collecting stamps, coins, books or art as a hobby. They may not hitherto have thought of their collections as potential investments to be examined and developed systematically as a bona fide part of their overall portfolios. In this book, each investment is examined systematically, covering: the background to the market; whether or not a particular category is appropriate for the individual's investment needs; the long-term returns that can reasonably be expected based on past history; whether or not there are tax advantages available; how best to buy and sell and through whom; and where to go for more information on that particular tangible investment area.
