Alternative investments uncovered: Investing in collectibles

by , 03 July 2015

If you're looking for different alternative investments to buy into, have you considered collectibles?

Collectibles can be a great portfolio diversifier as long as you know your niche market inside and out.

So what are collectibles? And what makes them good investments?

Read on to find out…


What are collectibles?


Collectibles are assets that don’t fall under any other alternative investment term. Collectibles include a huge array of items, including:

  • Art;
  • Watches;
  • Stamps;
  • Motorcycles;
  • Antiques; and
  • Comic books.

If you have a passion for the collectibles you invest in, you may find this simpler than investing in anything else.

The price and success of specific collectibles comes down to supply and demand. And if you know the market inside out, you’ll be in a better position to make excellent investments.


Key aspects about collectibles


There are a few things that define collectibles…

Firstly, they’re portable and you can trade them anywhere in the world.

Secondly, they tend to produce inflation beating returns.

The main disadvantages of investing in collectibles is the market has a lot of frauds doing the rounds. And if you want to sell quickly, you may struggle to find a buyer. So collectibles aren’t generally the most liquid investment.

But you can make a lot of money investing in collectibles.

At Christies in New York on 11 May, Les Femmes d’Alger, a masterpiece by Pablo Picasso went for $179,365,000. This makes it the most expensive painting to ever sell at auction.

Another area worth looking into is watches. If your watch has the proper supporting paperwork, you can take you timepiece, such as a Rolex, to any city in the world and be able to sell it.

Again you need to watch out for fakes. Get a professional’s opinion before buying a high value watch.

So there you have it. Investing in collectibles.
