Alternative investments – the how, why and where?

GoldMoney is to host a panel discussion exploring ways to diversify an investment portfolio with precious metals, UK buy-to-let property and rare stamps and coins. All three are tangible assets which have formed a part of portfolio investment and wealth protection for centuries.

Nigel Pascoe Director of Lending with Skipton International and Keith Heddle, Group Investment Director, Stanley Gibbons will join Alasdair Macleod, GoldMoney's Head of Research for the free Alternative Investments seminar at The Grand, Jersey.

The event will be hosted by GoldMoney Director, Natasha Le Dain-Cyples, who says the seminar will be the perfect opportunity to hear about the latest opportunities: 'Property, gold and stamps and coins have a long track record when it comes to investment returns. Our panel of experts will be looking at the current and past performance of these assets, who these opportunities might be right for and how private investors and intermediaries can take advantage of them.'

Stanley Gibbons has been serving collectors in the UK since 1856 and is the market leader in stamp collecting. The Jersey based company set up a designated Investment Department in 2003 to cope with increased demand for rare collectibles as a mainstream investment option. It now has rare stamp and autograph portfolios of over £90 million under management. As well as the rarest, finest stamps, which they have been dealing in for 157 years, Stanley Gibbons also offer rare coins, medals and signatures.

Skipton International is a Channel Islands' bank, and one of the leading mortgage lenders in the Island. Skipton International has developed a UK residential buy-to-let product specifically to enable Islanders to be able to look outside of the limited housing supply in the Channel Islands for investment.

GoldMoney is one of the world's leading online precious metals traders with secure partner vaults in five locations around the world. Gold has recently been included among the list of approved investments for certain types of tax efficient pension schemes in Jersey.

Former broadcaster, Gwyn Garfield-Bennett, will moderate the seminar following which there will be an opportunity for questions and a networking session with drinks and canapés.

The seminar takes place at the Grand Suite, Grand Jersey on Wednesday 18th June. Registration is from 16.30 with the seminar 17:00-19:00.

Historically gold has been an excellent way to preserve purchasing power over long periods of time. For example, today it takes almost the same amount of gold to buy a barrel of crude oil as it did 60 years ago which is in stark contrast to the price of oil in terms of national currencies such as the US dollar.

GoldMoney is regulated by the Jersey Financial Services Commission and complies with Jersey's anti-money laundering laws and regulations. GoldMoney has established industry-leading governance policies and procedures to protect customers' assets with independent audit reporting every 3 months by two leading audit firms.
