Risk warnings and important information
None of the content above should be considered to constitute investment advice. Individuals’ objectives and circumstances vary and as such appropriate investments for one may not be appropriate investments for all.
Past Performance is a poor indicator and certainly no guarantee of future performance.
Investments can fall as well as rise, and may fall considerably.
The value of investments is not guaranteed and you may not receive back the full amount invested.
The tax treatment of investments such as these, including the initial tax relief available, are dependent on the investment vehicle successfully maintaining qualifying status throughout its life.
Many tax advantaged investments are high risk investments and we strongly recommend investors do not consider investing on the basis of this information alone or investing without obtaining financial advice from an appropriate source.
Investments in small companies are speculative and the promise of higher potential returns comes with a commensurately higher risk of capital losses.
*Definition of a failed investment is the loss of 50% or more of the original investment.
All statements concerning the tax treatment of products and their benefits are based on our understanding of current tax law and HM Revenue and Customs’ practice. Levels and bases of tax relief are subject to change.

Alternative Investments: The Collector's Choice

Alternative Investments: The Collector's Choice

Alternative investments open the door for those of us who are not cut out for the world of traditional investment. Traditional investment refers to shares, money, property, bonds etc. and it requires a strong business mind (and the experts from CTFM) to navigate. In this black and white world of graphs and hard facts, passion can sometimes fall to the wayside. That's where alternative investments come in.

Value can be found where we choose to place it; sentimental or monetary. A lucky few can find both these values in their hobby: collecting. It is, of course, important to note that not all collections are valuable: tourist t-shirts from around the world do not quite hold the same value as a collection of Ming vases, for example.

But if you are confident in your collection and you have made well-researched choices, don't let anyone deter you from roping them in one after the other. Some pieces retain their value through economic ups-and-downs and can be a way of keeping your finances steady.

Compare the Financial Markets suggests a few key collectors item's that might prove to be excellent investment opportunities for this year. They are:

-Vintage Automobiles: with returns higher than that of gold or equities in 2016, vintage automobiles have caught the eyes of investors (and not just your quirky neighbour Herbert down the street who is always tinkering away at that old car of his).

-Philately: stamp collecting has long since ceased to be the hobby of young boys and librarians. If you know your stuff, you just might be able to build up a collection worth thousands of pounds. Stamps are regarded as tangible pieces of history and, like art, they can far outlive their own times.

-Contemporary Art: with the help of an expert and some thorough research, you can invest in a piece that would steadily increase in value as the years go by, as well as look pretty in the foyer.

Investments can be personal, as well as business-like. Injecting a bit of passion into alternative investments could only be a good thing. What will you be collecting?
