You may at various times via the press have come across a few ‘exotic’ ideas, such as wine, classic cars, renewable energy and even forestry. Many articles, and professional research, have actually for years published findings that such investments do indeed perform very well – extremely well, that is. So well, in fact, that they have been outperforming all the standard financial market asset classes, like equities and bonds.
That’s right, even with the huge gains we have seen in the stock market since the major crash in 2008, these assets have actually beaten stocks and bonds. Oh, and they have done with much less risk and volatility. In normal language that means the returns, i.e., the cash they generate for investors, have been far more stable and consistent. So, we are looking at superior returns, with lower fluctuations and none of the dramatic up-and-down gyrations of the financial markets.
Sounds pretty appealing, wouldn’t you agree?
And why then, we could reasonably ask, are such investments not widely available, since we are all only-too-aware that pensions as-our-parents-know-them are largely a thing of the past; and, subsequently, we need to save more – and that we also need to get more performance from those very savings?
Very well, you may have thought. Those kind of investments are expensive and difficult to get hold of, due to their rarity, size and/or value, and therefore something reserved for rich people. And, after all, it’s not really all that surprising that the wealthy manage to identify and claim the most attractive opportunities that produce the best returns.
Well, that’s about to change…
One more important aspect, first, though. Even if we were aware that these assets, such as, for example, classic cars, forestry and wine, had risen in value more than any other quantifiably measurable assets, one overriding issue was always nagging: There never seemed to be a simple, easy and integrated way to find and assess such types of investments.
Not only was getting well-structured and easily obtained information lacking, but accessing them; that is, how to actually get financial exposure to them, was nigh impossible.
Well, that part is about to change, too…
