Bonus offer for stamp and coin investors


Stanley Gibbons Investments is offering new clients of its Capital Growth Plan a 5 per cent ‘welcome bonus’ if they invest GBP25,000 or more by year end. 

Commenting on the offer, Keith Heddle, Managing Director of Stanley Gibbons Investments, says: “With market volatility now commonplace and doom-mongers currently clustering, we are taking the initiative and raising the standard for a historically stable, supply-demand driven asset class that could provide an investment anchor for people looking for capital growth and improved diversification.  
“This offer underlines our confidence in the appreciation of rare stamps and coins over the long term, as Stanley Gibbons only benefits if our clients see a return. It’s a case of investing in history with the potential of providing a solid financial future – and we want to make investors aware of that.”
The Capital Growth Plan, a five-year investment, provides clients with their own balanced portfolio of carefully selected prestige, investment-grade stamps and coins.  The firm says that these are picked for their authenticity, rarity and condition, to give them the best chance of growth over the medium term. Stanley Gibbons will also insure, value and store all items at no additional charge.
Stanley Gibbons says that rare stamps and coins have proven to be one of the most reliable long-term ‘buy and hold’ alternative assets for investors looking for portfolio diversification and low volatility.
Their figures show that over the last ten years, the GB250 Index, which tracks the performance of the top 250 traded, investment grade British stamps, recorded a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.4 per cent.
The GB200 coin index, charting the performance of 200 rare British coins, showed a CAGR of 12.75 per cent without a drop in that time.  The firm cites both the Knight Frank Wealth report and the Coutts Luxury Index for highlighting the lack of volatility of these ‘passion investments.’
Clients are charged on exit from the Capital Growth Plan, with Stanley Gibbons taking a 20 per cent commission on the profit generated from the original invested sum.
