Five reasons why you should invest in collectibles
There are a number of reasons why you should include collectibles
in your investment portfolio…
Collectibles give you a way to store your wealth and in many instances they’re portable too. Think gold coins, diamonds, art and stamps.
You can trade collectibles on the global market. The Internet has made this even easier.
Broadly speaking, you should see capital appreciation in excess of inflation over the long-term.
Collectibles have an aesthetic value that you don’t get with stocks and shares.
You can turn a passion into a money making venture.
The cons of investing in collectibles
As with all investments, collectibles have a downside too…
Many highly desirable collectibles come with a hefty price tag. And the more you invest in one item, the greater the risk.
There are less than scrupulous dealers out there who could try to take advantage of you in the market place.
The market for collectibles can be volatile. It all boils down to supply and demand. For instance, if you need to sell one of your collectibles quickly, you may struggle to find a buyer.
How to start investing in collectibles
To benefit from diversification, you should limit your collectible investments to less than 5% of your total assets.
Try to tie in your investment into collectibles with areas that interest you. Successful collectible investing means learning everything you can about that specific market.
Once you know what you want to invest in, start finding reputable dealers you can rely on for advice and to buy pieces through.
So there you have it. If you want to diversify your portfolio, invest in collectibles.

How much is R320,000 in PROVEN business ideas worth to you?
It’s amazing just how many people are willing to gamble their savings and hopes on business opportunities without learning more about them first. And let’s face it – business opportunities don’t come cheap.
You can expect to pay upwards of R450 – R999 for a biz op report, R2,500 – R15,000 for a course, advisory service or entry into a network marketing scheme and from R250,000–R10 million for a franchise.
But just because you pay more doesn’t guarantee better quality. Some of the best biz ops are cheap (or even free – as you’ll soon find out) while some of the greatest disappointments are literally R200,000 or more!
I want to give you systematic plans you can put into action immediately and for little or no cost. I truly believe that together we can make you as much as R320,000 a year full-time.
