« Diamonds, Gold and Alternative Investments
Alternative investments, what does it mean and what makes an investment ‘Alternative’? Alternative Investments are all the investments that are not made in stocks or bonds. The term is pretty vague and you can see them like tangible assets. This contrast with other financial investments like stocks or bonds which are not physical. Some like to hold them for their own enjoyment and others like to keep them as preserved as possible to sell it later on with profit. Since I’m writing this for investors I would like to pay attention to the second option. Selling with profit.hard porns
Since the depression Alternative investments lost a lot of their value(expect for Noble Metals), but still it is a good investment. The Merrill Lynch/Cap Gemini Ernst & Young World Wealth Report 2003, based on 2002 data, showed high net worth individuals, as defined in the report, to have 10% of their financial assets in alternative investments. In 2008 it was still 7%. The value most alternative investments lost is not as great as the loss on stocks. In times like these Alternative investments would make a safe haven for your wealth.
The emerging markets are definitely into Alternative investments. Here is a quote from The Merrill Lynch/Cap Gemini Ernst & Young World Wealth Report 2012. ‘Art and antiques investments among emerging market HNWIs has driven up prices for regional and cultural historical art from China and Latin America. China (including Hong Kong) has overtaken the U.S. as the world’s largest market for art and antiques, representing 30% of the global art market in 2011 versus 29% for the U.S.’ Rich people in emerging markets like to show their wealth. I think it is a good thing because it will encourage other people to work just as hard to reach the same level. I personally think this will not stop despite the global economy slowing down. Noble Metals are still extremely attractive and I’m not talking about gold but about diamonds. ‘Jewelry, gems, and watches experienced a rise in value in 2011 with diamonds outperforming the market again in 2011 with a 20% price increase from the previous year’. It has increased a lot in value but it still has room to go even higher. Again the emerging markets are buying a lot of Jewelry and diamonds to show their wealth and on the long term this will continue to grow.hard porns
Even on Alternative investments you can speculate. For example look at Twinkies, the price increased dramatically when the news came out of their bankruptcy. You can also invest in young artist and film makers for example. This risk is high but the possible reward is even greater. Post stamps and so on are still good investment according to the wealth report. ‘Rare stamps continued to be an attractive option for investors with all stamp indices growing impressively in 2011.’ You still have to be careful though because stamps and wine can lose a lot of their value if another global recession will occurhard porns
All by all I think there are still some great opportunities out there for you to buy. You got to have a lot of knowledge about what you are going to buy. Don’t buy paintings if you don’t know their value and you don’t have a lot of expertise in the subject. Be careful when you buy things online and always ask for a certificate of authenticity. The best Alternative Investments for people with minimal knowledge about wine and so on can always go into Noble Metals. Which will always keep stable in value in some way.
