Investing in Alternative Assets
Alternative investments offer huge potential for astute investors.
Alternative investment classes have gained momentum recently, and publicity, due to the credit crunch and uncertainty in mainstream markets.
There is an increasing demand for tangible assets that are limited in supply; especially those with historic prices reflecting favourable returns.
Individuals looking for greater control over their wealth have found that collectible investments, in particular, offer a sound diversification from traditional asset classes.
"It is not the strongest of species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change"
The ability to diversify a portfolio is a big attraction.
The benefits of diversification have been clear to see in recent years.
Investment Bank Merrill Lynch recommends clients invest 10% of their portfolio into alternative investments:
- Hedge against inflation
- Give you greater control over your asset allocation
- Offer a safe haven from mainstream investments
- Impressive historical returns
- Market size expected to double in the next 20 years
- Economic & demographic forecasts support a profitable return in the future
- Negate tax liabilities, returns are subject to capital gains tax, not income tax
- Some areas are even regarded as wasting chattels meaning there is no capital gains tax to pay
Alternative investments are generally very portable and act as a global currency, effectively allowing you to sell wherever the best price can be achieved, anywhere in the world.
Market whispers are saying that inflation could be a real problem in the next few years, and in past inflationary cycles alternative investments have performed well.
Alternative Investments have been subject to serious research by collectors, academics and investors over the years.
