“ With Stanley Gibbons, the moment you invest with us, each piece of paper you will then own is a little piece of history, a


tangible, heritage asset with a true value, whether it’s a rare Victorian or Edwardian stamp or a signed manuscript





You can rely on the tortoise. You can rely on our expertise; as the Times wrote, Stanley Gibbons has, “an unblemished reputation for expertise and honest dealing.” Trust in your investments is critical in today’s febrile climate. We have a 155 year track record of identifying and dealing in rare stamps; we have philatelic experts who have worked for the business for years (if not decades) and who are renowned worldwide as being the “experts’ expert” in their field; we are the name on almost everyone’s lips when rare stamps are mentioned – and for good reason.


You can rely on us to guarantee your capital to remove your risk; we researched and listened to our customers and to the market, to investors’ concerns about losing the wealth you’ve worked so hard to accumulate. Some of you have seen savings stagnate, many of you have lost money on the stock market, some of you have even seen the value of your homes fall.


That’s why we created the Capital Protected Growth Plan - an investment wrapper which guarantees your capital 100%* but allows you to benefit from all the potential growth in the rare stamp market. In essence, in the unlikely event that the stamp market declines (unlikely based on historical performance) we guarantee to return your invested sum; however, if as we expect, the stamp market continues to grow, you benefit from the growth.


Going the distance Not flashy, not fast, not ‘sexy’ – and yet in today’s uncertain times and


with ‘volatility’ on every financial analyst’s lips, isn’t strong, steady and secure (if perhaps a little slow) not a highly attractive concept?


We won’t promise you excitement. We certainly won’t promise you ‘get rich quick’ schemes. But we may give you a very good chance of securing an investment that is very compelling and rewarding over the distance.


On the basis of prolonged historical performance, you are unlikely to encounter any ‘bears’ in the wood with a rare stamp investment; and if you’re looking for ‘bulls’, the closest we get is probably an investment in Chinese stamps or our newest diversification option, rare coins.


However, if you’re looking for a secure option for 5-10 years, why not consider backing a tortoise?


And one more thing that might attract you… The pieces of paper you’ll own if you invest with us are not share certificates, giving you a virtual slice of a business whose fortunes you have no influence on.


With Stanley Gibbons, the moment you invest with us, each piece of paper you will then own is a little piece of history, a tangible, heritage asset with a true value, whether it’s a rare Victorian or Edwardian stamp or a signed manuscript.


If you want a chance of winning the long-term race, then all you have to do is contact us to discuss your options and investment aspirations.


So next time you’re wooed by the thought of a quick return, beware the promise of lightning pace, for slow and steady won the race!
