Few would dare to question the difference he made in the second world war, but can Winston Churchill memorabilia have a similarly beneficial impact on your portfolio?
That's a question growing numbers of investors seeking diversity are finding out for themselves, with positive results.
In fact, the market for Winston Churchill memorabilia is booming.
A half-finished cigar sold for £4,500 ($6,910) in a UK sale in 2010, while a set of his dentures made £17,480 ($26,830) at Bonhams in 2010, 249.6% above their £5,000 ($7,670) estimate.
But it is the signature of the former British prime minister that is causing the most excitement among long-term investors.
Churchill-signed photos have grown 7.82% pa in value since 2000, from £2,600 ($4,000) to £5,950 ($9,160), according to the PFC40 Autograph Index.
