Weather the Storm with these Top Tips

8th November 2011

Another interesting article that looks at the benefits of collecting and investing in original posters as art you can enjoy every day:

A Nest Egg of Film Posters
"A key appeal of alternative investments is you are buying something tangible," says Toby Walne, author of 101 Extraordinary Investments. "Unlike being at the whims of nervous stock markets or devilish derivative products, you get involved in a fascinating hobby where returns are not just financial but bring pleasure." He points to original film posters as a great alternative investment for movie fans. "A 1958 Alfred Hitchcock Vertigo poster drawn by Saul Bass that sells for £5000 should at least holds its value if kept in good condition. A couple of decades ago, it might have cost £300.
"Affordable modern classics include Quentin Tarantino's 1992 Reservoir Dogs, which can still be picked up for £500. Nostalgia for better times is a major driving force, and may become particularly strong over the next few years of austerity."
